INDIANA — Parents in the Hoosier state getting their children ready for the upcoming school year have one less thing to worry about as school districts across the state have access to free school meals for all students.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced in April that it would be extending several nationwide waivers to ensure all students receive high-quality, nutritious meals. The department is allowing school districts to provide meals free of charge to families through the 2021-2022 school year.
Parents will still need to apply for free and reduced-price meals in order to get textbook assistance.
