Yellow Medicine East- ISD 2190
Application for Educational Benefits
Yellow Medicine East provides healthy meals each day. The United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to provide meals for the 2021-2022 school year through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). A waiver has been issued in order to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVID-19.
Our school has chosen to use this waiver and operate the SSO which enables us to provide meals FREE OF CHARGE for all students. No application is required to receive this free meal benefit.
However, your child(ren) may qualify for additional local benefits such as reduced fees for device insurance and activity participation fees. They may also qualify for Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food. At public schools, your application also helps the school qualify for education funds and discounts. Your child(ren) may benefit by simply applying and may not need to meet the income guidelines.
