As our community continues to recover following Hurricane Irma, Bright Futures Academy, as well as other public schools in Palm Beach County, will be offering FREE school meals from today through October 20. No paperwork or forms are necessary to participate. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program expects to feed over 1.4 million students through this temporary measure.
“In times of disaster, it’s paramount that USDA makes it as easy as possible for our programs to be administered, so no one affected by this disaster goes hungry” said USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue. “Florida is currently reporting shortages of certain food products, so these sensible and timely flexibilities will ensure children receive the assistance needed.”
