BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Bedford County Public Schools says parents will need to apply for free or reduced meals for their children for the 2020-2021 school year.
According to the school system, the United States Department of Agriculture will require the School Nutrition Program to revert back to National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) guidelines instead of the Summer Food Service Program guidelines that have been followed since March. Because of this switch, Bedford County Public School will no longer be able to provide meals to all students at no cost.
Families will need to fill out new meal applications for the 2020-2021 school year. Families can apply for meal benefits online by going to the https://www.myschoolapps.com/Application.
School meals will be available for all Bedford County Public Schools students. This includes on-campus students and remote students.
