As of Wednesday, schools within the Harrison County School District are offering universal free meals to all children ages 18 and under whether they are learning at school or virtually.
The Harrison County School Board approved the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s extension of the summer food service program through the fall semester.
The program will allow parents/guardians to pick up breakfast and lunch packages from any HCSD school campus at no cost regardless of family income or enrollment in the district.
There is no application or requirements to participate.
In addition to regular meal services for traditional students, all school sites in HCSD will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for free meal pickups.
Families with questions regarding the program may call the HCSD Child Nutrition Department during regular business hours at 228-539-6516.
