For meals in Oregon schools, over the last several years, which kids have to pay and how much they have to pay keeps changing. For two years during COVID, it was straightforward for families: all children in the nation received free school meals. That has ended, however, just as new Oregon law expanding school meals is coming online. These changes in federal and state law will play out differently at different schools and different families.
Partners for a Hunger-free Oregon is offering a webinar to provide a brief overview of what is changing and how and when you might need to encourage families to be proactive to ensure that their children receive free school meals.
A staff member from the Oregon Department of Education will be on hand to answer questions.
