The United States Department of Agriculture has extended a nationwide waiver to allow the Quakertown Community School District to provide FREE meals to ALL students regardless of need through the end of the 2020-21 school year, or until available federal funding runs out. No qualification or identification is needed.

In QCSD, all students are eligible to receive FREE breakfast and FREE lunch beginning Wednesday, September 23.

Here’s more information about breakfast and lunch in QCSD:

Breakfast will be served in all school cafeterias starting 20 minutes before the first class. Social distancing will be in place in each location.
