The Big Spring School District operates the School Lunch/Breakfast Program administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education Child Nutrition Program. Our goal is to provide your child the recommended dietary requirements for lunch and breakfast needed for healthy growth and development. Our highly qualified staff is dedicated to this commitment and the nutritional needs of your child.
Free Meals Children Aged 1-18
Due to a recent change in legislation, Big Spring School District is again able to offer FREE meals to ALL children aged 1-18 until June 30, 2021. The free meal program is effective until the end of the school year. Please read below for important details on how to participate in the free breakfast and lunch program.
Face to Face Students. On the days in which students attend face-to-face, they are able to participate in the normal school breakfast and lunch program meals, in their building, and will not be charged. Any optional a la carte items will be charged to the student’s account.
For those days the students are not at school, Parents/Guardians must request those meals at www.bigspringsd.org/food. By completing this form, you are requesting, and agree to pickup, bagged meals for both breakfast and lunch on virtual days.
Note: each child is only eligible for the equivalent of one free breakfast & lunch per school day. Duplicate meals may result in your child's account being charged for the extra meal(s).
Virtual/CAOLA Cyber and other children within the community. Parents/Guardians of students who live in the community and attend a virtual full-time online academy or children within the community who do not fall within any of the above-mentioned school attendance schedules must also register at www.bigspringsd.org/food to request, and agree to pickup, bagged meals for five breakfasts and five lunches for each child for whom you have registered.
For all pickup meals, the request cycle opens weekly at 11am Friday and closes at 11am Tuesday for the Friday pickup -- theses meals are for the following week. Parents/Guardians must complete a new form for each child and for each week in which you are requesting meals.
Friday Meal Pickup. Meals are available for pickup from 3-4:00pm each Friday in the High School parking lot by the athletic fields.
