Free Meals

Hillsboro School District is participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means that our school is providing free meals to all students! This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved free and reduced-price meal application, we are still distributing and processing them so Hillsboro School District families may qualify for P-EBT benefits as well as other school funding. 

The district continues to encourage all families to submit the application.

When your child participates in our healthy and delicious school meals program it will save your family time and money. At breakfast, all children are offered at least four food items from three food components (grain, fruit, and fluid milk) and at lunch are offered five food components (grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and fluid milk). For your child’s breakfast to be free, they must take at least three food items, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. For your child’s lunch meal to be free, they must take at least three different food components, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. Second meals, a la carte items, milk only, or meals that do not meet the requirements described above will be charged a fee.

Our breakfast and lunch menus are always posted on our district website.
