On September 1, 2020 the USDA announced that they will be extending the waiver for the Summer Meals Program through December 31, 2020 (as funding allows). After a presentation by the Maine DOE Child Nutrition Director on September 3, 2020, RSU1 has decided to opt into this program.
What this means for students of the District is that Breakfast and Lunch will be offered for no charge through 12/31/2020 or until the funds run out. The DOE Child Nutrition Department is working out the details of this, and will be giving districts guidance in the next couple of weeks. As we receive the details, and work out the logistics, we will relay that information to the RSU1 Community.
In the meantime, beginning 9/8/2020, all students who eat breakfast or lunch at school, or who request meals to go home will do so at no charge. If you have questions about this Program, please contact: Tim Harkins, Food Service Director RSU1 (207) 443 6601 ex.114 or email: email@example.com
