EverGreen Academy is offering free meals for all of its students for the 2021-2022 school year. The free meal program is part of the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
While free and reduced-price lunch applications are not necessary to participate in this program, families are still encouraged to fill out the forms as a means to qualify for other state benefits such as the P-EBT program that provides funds to families during at-home pandemic learning.
