Free breakfast for K-8 students begins October 1
On Friday, September 9, 2022, Governor Tom Wolf announced that Pennsylvania will make it possible for all schools participating in the School Breakfast Program (SBP) to provide free breakfasts for all enrolled students during the 2022-2023 school year, beginning with breakfast meals served October 1, 2022.
In the Downingtown Area School District, only the Elementary and Middle Schools participate in the School Breakfast Program. The High Schools do not. This means:
- Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade will no longer be charged for breakfast starting October 1 for the 2022-2023 school year.
- Students in grades 9 through 12 will continue to be charged for breakfast.
Additional information about food services at DASD, including payment services, menus, applications for free and reduced meals and employment opportunities can be found on the Food Services website.
