Buchanan School Breakfast/Lunch Announcement!

Good Evening Buchanan Schools’ Parents and Guardians,

We are happy to announce that the USDA has extended a program allowing us to offer free breakfast and lunch to all Buchanan Community Schools’ students.  Your student(s) will be able to eat meals at school at no cost to you beginning on Tuesday, September 8th.  This program is scheduled to run until December 31st or until funds run out.

While this program allows all student to eat for free, it is important that you still fill out the Free and Reduced lunch application unless you received a letter from us stating that your students qualify for free or reduced meals by direct certification from the State of Michigan.  Completing this form guarantees that when this temporary program ends, your child will still receive free or reduced meals if they qualify.  It also ensures that our school district remains eligible for certain federal grants and funds that benefit our students.

Free and reduced applications are available at each school office, in each school cafeteria, and on line.

If your student is a K-4 remote learner, please look for communication from their teacher on how to order free school meals for them.

Milk will still be available for purchase if you bring a lunch from home, and a la carte sales at the middle school and high school will be phased in during the first month of school.

If you have any questions, please call the food service office at 269-695-8415.
