Free meals available to all GCSC students

Monday, September 14, 2020

In a move to help families in financially challenging times, Greencastle Community Schools announced recently that all students are eligible for free breakfast and lunches.

The USDA and Indiana Department of Education approved the move, which will last through Dec. 31 or until funds are depleted.

This means any full paid student or reduced student will no receive free meals at GCSC regardless of income.

During the program, the basic school meal will be free, but any extra food, snacks or drinks will cost extra.

Money in a child’s account will remain and any outstanding balances will still need to be paid.

Virtual students will also be contacted with instructions for participation and how meals will be distributed.

  • This is a great service but the headline is inaccurate. The meals aren't free. The purchase price is $0 to the consumer but someone is paying for them and.

    I understand the consumer may not understand this but I would like to think the news people would.

    Thank you, beg!

    You and I are paying - by way of government after they take their cut.

    Here, in a quick snapshot, is the exposed failings of civics in today's society.

    The press will make their defense, those who support such things will try to shame those disagree, the masses will lumber along in ignorance, and Leviathan grows bigger.
