No Kid Hungry is excited to announce a new opportunity for school districts in Indiana to promote school meal application submissions.
Congress didn’t extend the federal waiver authority that allowed all kids to eat for free the last two school years. This fall, most schools are going back to pre-pandemic operations.
This means that many Indiana families must submit an application form to their school to determine if their kids are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. School meals are a healthy, convenient option for busy families and they can also go a long way in helping make ends meet. To learn more about what this means, read our blog here.
Our contest is aimed at districts that would like to encourage families to submit their school meal applications. To do so, No Kid Hungry will give each participating school district a $100 gas card to raffle off to a family who submits their application by October 14.
Participating school districts are responsible for the following:
