Monte Vista School District participates in Universal Breakfast and Lunch Program


MONTE VISTA — The Monte Vista School District is participating in a Universal Breakfast and Lunch Program for the 2022-2023 school year.

Children attending Marsh Elementary, Bill Metz Elementary, Monte Vista Middle School, Monte Vista High School, or Byron Syring DELTA Center, breakfast-lunch will be available to them at no charge. All students enrolled in these schools may participate in the breakfast-lunch program at no charge to them.

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast-lunch for all children at no charge, the district is hoping to create a better learning environment for students.

The school breakfast and lunch that is served follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Universal Meals Program cannot succeed without local support.

All meals will be served to all students at no charge regardless of the eligibility status.
