All PCPS Students Eat For Free

Mike Seals - September 14, 2020 10:26 pm

In an unprecedented move due to the pandemic, the USDA has made school breakfast and lunch available FREE to ALL PONCA CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL CHILDREN through December 31, 2020, subject to available USDA funds.

Lunch and breakfast will be available FREE EVERYDAY to all students 18 and under – effective Tuesday, September 15, 2020. This means that even students who are not ordinarily part of the free or reduced lunch programs will also be included in these free meal distributions.

This program will last until December 31 or until USDA funds run out.

Everyone needs to complete the 2020-2021 Free and Reduced Meal Application online by Friday, September 25 if not already completed.

Ponca City Public Schools receives funding based on the number of people who have applied for this assistance. In addition, completing the application will allow for a seamless transition if/when the program through the USDA ends for those that do qualify to continue receiving free/reduced meals.

For more information or questions, please contact the PCPS Child Nutrition Department at (580) 718-3992.
