NCSD Food Service Information 2022-2023!

The first day of school for NCSD students is September 6th, 2022. As we get ready for Back to School, we want to ensure families have the necessary information to be prepared for a successful and excellent school year. The federal program put in place during COVID-19 by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that allowed Natrona County School District (NCSD) to provide free meals to all students has ended. Therefore, NCSD will be charging for meals starting in the 2022 -2023 school year.  
 
Families may qualify for free or reduced meals through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. We encourage families who are interested to complete the application. 

To determine if a household qualifies, families can complete an online application at natronaschools.org or fill out and turn in the paper application directly mailed to their home. Only one application per household needs to be completed. Additionally, you can complete the application if your family's financial circumstances change at any time throughout the school year. 

Natrona County School District Food Services is self-sustaining. Funds generated from meal sales assist us in continuing to provide inexpensive, nutritious meals to your students. Please note that meal prices have increased for the upcoming school year due to rising costs of food, the availability of supplies, and the transportation of items. Due to funding provided last year by the federal government, we have been able to offset some of the costs associated with this increase. However, NCSD is anticipating additional needed adjustments to meal prices in the coming years in conjunction with the pricing of food and the costs of delivery and transportation. 

As a reminder, families may apply for the Free and Reduced Price Meals by completing the application at any time throughout the school year. In addition, you may track your student’s meal account by going to www.myschoolbucks.com.
