KNOX CITY, BENJAMIN—The Knox City-O’Brien CISD and the Benjamin ISD have announced policies that this school year healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the USDA issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for students to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
