The USDA announced on Friday, October 9, 2020, that they are extending the flexibilities that allow free school meals through the end of 2020-2021 school year! That means Breakfast and Lunch are free for all Bridgman students for the entire school year!
Apply now for free or reduced meals
Free School Meals!!!!
The USDA has extended a waiver to provide students free School meals until December 31, 2020, or until the available funding runs out. Students will be able to eat breakfast and/or lunch at no cost for that time period. If you feel you qualify, it is still necessary to fill out the free or reduced meal application for your student. This will ensure a seamless transition when this program ends. Weekend meals will be distributed on Thursday from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM at F.C. Reed Middle school gym parking lot. Just pull up to the open door.
Bridgman Schools knows why breakfast is so important. That is why we offer breakfast in all of our schools every day.
Breakfast is a great way to give the body the refueling it needs. Kids who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities — two great ways to help maintain a healthy weight.
Skipping breakfast can make kids feel tired, restless, or irritable. In the morning, their bodies need to refuel for the day ahead after going without food for 8 to 12 hours during sleep. Their mood and energy can drop by midmorning if they don’t eat at least a small morning meal.
Breakfast also can help keep kids’ weight in check. Breakfast kick-starts the body’s metabolism, the process by which the body converts the fuel in food to energy. And when the metabolism gets moving, the body starts burning calories. If you qualify for free or reduced lunches, this applies to breakfast as well.
