Free Meals For Clark County Students

Free meals are available to all Clark County School district students again during the 2022-2023 academic year. It is the first week of classes for CCSD students and teachers, and it is good to know that no child will go hungry. According to the CCSD website,  the "Child Nutrition Program" will be serving "nutritious, appetizing and affordable meals to students" throughout the 2022-2023 school year. These "nutritionally balanced low-cost or free lunches" are provided through the National School Lunch Program. Here in Clark County, this program is supported and assisted by federal funds. The state of Nevada has also pitched in to the free lunch program with $75 million dollars. These funds are shared by all counties in the state. These free or reduced-cost meal programs are being offered to all students, regardless of eligibility, as long as they are officially enrolled in a Clark County School District school. Menus are posted in all cafeterias. Breakfast and lunch menus can also be found here. Our county's school children have gone through some tough times since the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020. School closings, virtual classrooms, canceled team and individual sports have all contributed to a major change in how our kids learn. With this free meal program, there is one less thing for our kids to worry about. They won't be going hungry. It is very tough to concentrate when you are feeling hunger. If your family is finding it difficult to make ends meet, there is no shame at all in participating in this program. Take advantage of it. It is there for all students.   Let’s be friends! 👍 Follow us on all social media platforms: Twitter: Instagram: Facebook: [ss-signup design_id="2012286"]   Larry Martino is the long-time Afternoon Drive personality on 96.3 KKLZ.
