Summer break for many students is a time to kick back, play outside, and hang out with friends. For a significant portion of public school students in the United States, however, the end of school also brings a familiar question—what's for lunch?

During the school year, about 30.3 million children receive free or reduced-price lunches at their public schools. But in the summer, only 2.6 million of those students receive a free or reduced lunch. That's fewer than 10 percent.

Brown County Schools are giving FREE meals to kids and teens age 18 and under .These healthy meals based on USDA nutrition guidelines. 

• Its a fun, safe place for kids and teens

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we approach the 2016-2017 school year, we ask that you take a moment and create a free account at: www.MyPaymentsPlus.com.

Once your account is created, you can take advantage of other free benefits of the site, such as low-balance e-mail notifications and even the ability to download the free MyPaymentsPlus mobile app, which is available for all iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android devices. The mobile app will also allow for you to set up push notifications regarding your student’s balance.

For a small fee, Through MyPaymentsPlus, you are able to deposit funds directly into your student’s cafeteria account. Deposits can take place both on the MyPaymentsPlus website and via the mobile app.

If you prefer auto-payments, you have that ability as well. The system will even allow for you to set the parameters for when you would like an auto-payment to take place.

The MyPaymentsPlus Support Team can be reached Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:30 EST at: (877) 237-0946 or via email at: support@mypaymentsplus.com if you require assistance.

The House Committee on Education and the Workforce on Wednesday approved a Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill that would raise the qualifications for school districts to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision.

The legislation, which will now be considered by the full House, would require school nutrition professionals in the program to have at least 60 percent of students qualify for a free or reduced-price meal in order to be able to offer free meals to all students in the school. The current standard is 40 percent.

Another key provision of the bill establishes a block-grant pilot project in three unannounced states, but is open for all to apply, says the School Nutrition Association. Under the grant, the federal government would provide a set amount of funding to child nutrition programs for three years.

Operators would then determine on their own how they would run their foodservices, says the SNA, adding that school feeders would not have to follow federal regulations for child nutrition programs, including nutritional guidelines and mandatory procedures such as providing income verification used to offer free and reduced priced meals.
