You get a meal, and you get a meal.
Teton County School District No. 1 announced Thursday that every child under the age of 19 will be eligible for school breakfasts and lunches through Dec. 31. Starting Friday, any kid at any district school can eat two meals a day for free, and kids who are not at school can have a parent or guardian pick up the meals at Jackson Hole High School between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
"We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to all students, regardless of financial need," communications director Charlotte Reynolds said.
Reynolds told the News&Guide that Food Services Director Wes Clarke recently applied for funding to roll the program out through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which also funded the similar meals program this spring that fed kids from the high school and through deliveries after schools went to distance education. He found out Thursday the district's application had been approved.
