Our school cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school breakfast and lunch! Grant offers a school lunch for just $2.75 per meal and breakfast for $1.25 per meal.
