School Meals

ACT 656 of 2023

Beginning in school year 2023-2024, child nutrition programs that serve school breakfast and/or school lunch shall not charge a qualifying student a reduced-price copayment. The traditional $0.30 copayment for breakfast and $0.40 copayment for lunch may not be collected from the household.

Wynne Public Schools Child Nutrition Department has already put the ACT 656 of 2023 in place. It has been in place since July 24, 2023. If your household has qualified for reduced-priced meals for the 2023-2034 school year by an application, money will not be collected.

Act 656 of 2023 is for the 2023-2024 school year only. For the 2024-2025 school year, money will be collected from the household for reduced qualifying households. Breakfast will be $0.30 and lunch will be $0.40.
