Students of the Hoxie School District will now get free breakfast and lunch for the 2016-2017 school year.

The meals are provided through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Special Assistance Certification Reimbursement Community Eligibility Provision, available to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program or School Breakfast Program.

Federal reimbursement for meals is based on the Identified Student Percentage, set by the district.

All teachers, support staff members, administrators, adults and visitors will be required to pay the full cost of the meal, which is $1.75 for breakfast and $3.40 for lunch.
