NCSD FOOD SERVICE INFORMATION

Natrona County School District is participating in the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) Summer Seamless Option for the 2021-2022 school year. This program provides breakfast and lunch to all students in the community free of charge through the end of the school year.

A la carte and second entrees will be available for purchase by students. Please note, due to shortages from food distribution suppliers, our breakfast and lunch menus are subject to change. Our suppliers are working diligently to address this issue; however, menu changes may occur after menus are published. 

Although school meals are being provided free to all children, parents and guardians are encouraged to complete the OPTIONAL  Free and Reduced Meal Application. Schools are provided additional funding sources through the application process. 

If you have a positive balance on your MySchoolBucks account and you don't think your child will use it up on extra items or a la carte items, you can choose to have the funds roll over to next year or you can request a refund through the NCSD Food Services Department. If you have the automatic deposit to your child's MySchoolBucks account, you may consider suspending it at this time.
