Liberty Hill ISD Required to Transition Back to Paid School Meals and Offer Free and Reduced-Price School Meals Based on Eligibility
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Liberty Hill ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.
Decisions regarding payment for school meals are made at the national government level, not by the school district, nutrition team, or the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA). The dedicated staff at Liberty Hill ISD is looking forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to students in the new school year.
Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, also available on the District’s Webpage Child Nutrition Services, and return the completed form online or to any school office.
