The Nevada R-5 School District has received notification that the USDA has provided waivers allowing schools to serve free meals to ALL children. This means all children ages 18 and under can receive a free breakfast and lunch each day, excluding snack milk, extra milk, a la carte and second meals beginning on Monday, September 14, 2020. The USDA plans to continue this program until December 2020 or until funds have been depleted.
