Exciting News! Approved To Provide Free meals through 12/31/20

Due to a recent USDA Summer Food Service Program Waiver Extension, Urbandale CSD has been approved by the Iowa Department of Education to provide free breakfast and lunches starting Monday, September 14 through December 31, 2020, or until the congressionally appropriated funding runs out. This extension allows all students to receive free breakfast and lunch regardless of their meal status during this time. This applies to meals served to students when they are attending school in person or when they are attending school remotely (Note: this also applies for children 18 years and younger who are not enrolled in our District). You’re welcome to review the USDA announcement. (Note: A la carte items will still be available for purchase at the Middle School and High School.)
