If your household qualified for free or reduced-price meal benefits by

May 6 of this school year you may possibly be eligible for pandemic EBT (P-EBT).

P-EBT can help individuals purchase food if their children have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to COVID-related school absences during the 2021-2022 school year.

During the 2021-22 school year, all students, regardless of income status, can receive one free breakfast and one free lunch each day they attend school. However, this does NOT qualify students for P-EBT, nor does it automatically give students free-reduced status. To determine the free-reduced status of a student, individuals must have applied through their school.

Please visit jobs.utah.gov/PEBT for more information on the P-EBT program.

 

If parents need to apply for P-EBT for a child’s absence due to COVID-19, please submit the following form no later than 06/24/2022 to Nutrition Services at:

Free Breakfast And Lunch UNTIL THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR For All Enrolled Freedom Preparatory Academy Students!

ALL students in-class and online are eligible for free meals every school day until the end of the school year.

The USDA has extended some COVID-19 summer benefits to help families cope with the rising cost of food.  Please take advantage of this opportunity.

Students will not have to enter their numbers during this time.  They just check in with the cafeteria worker so they can be counted. 

If your student prefers home lunch, it can be supplemented with a fruit, vegetable and milk for free.  Milk-only still needs to be purchased, so why not improve nutrition and health by adding a fruit and vegetable?  You will get all 3 for FREE!

 If a student has a diagnosed food allergy or intolerance, and you haven’t already turned in a medical statement for meal accommodations, please email Dr. Dean (adean@freedomprep.net) so substitutions can be made.

 

 Due to labor and facility constraints, Freedom Preparatory Academy schools are designated as “Restrictive Open” sites, so it is only open to enrolled students.

 

If you are an online student, please email Patricia at the secondary school cafeteria (tpedroza@freedomprep.net) and make arrangements for a pickup.

 We still encourage applications for free and reduced meals so that the school can continue to qualify for other programs and grants.

 

 We will do our best to follow the menu, however sometimes our vendors run out of product due to high demand, so we may have to make occasional substitutions.  No matter what, students will get complete meals.  This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
