SB 250 – PUPIL MEALS: CHILD HUNGER PREVENTION AND FAIR TREATMENT ACT OF 2017
What is SB 250?
This bill enacts the Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act of 2017. This act ensures that a pupil whose parent or guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed, treated differently, or served a meal that differs from a pupil whose parent or guardian does not have unpaid school meal fees.
Why is this important?
Students will not be notified by school site staff about their meal account, nor will they be denied a meal or provided an alternative meal due to the status of their account. The Nutrition Services office will notify a parent or guardian of the negative balance of a student’s school meal account (via mail, phone, and email) no later than 10 days after the student’s school meal account has reached a negative balance.
The goal of our breakfast and lunch programs is to provide healthy meals to children during the school day. In order to serve healthy, high-quality meals to all children, we must make sure we are financially secure. Parents play a key role in this effort and are responsible for purchases made by your child at our sites.
We understand that mistakes happen. Children forget or lose their money, but meal payments are important to the stability of our program. We offer several payment options including the Titan Family Portal, an online application, and a payment system.
If you think your child may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals, please apply online using the Titan Family Portal.
