The Harrisonville School District is pleased to offer free meals to any child in the community age 18 and under through the end of the school year. The meals are provided through an extension of the SFSP (Summer Food Service Program), a program administered by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (MDHSS) and funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
In-person students can access the free meals daily at school and can sign up to take meals home for the weekends using this form - https://forms.gle/J1Jrb4w4AWszESw57. Please complete the form by Feb. 3. You only need to fill out the form once and the meals will be provided to the student each Friday for the remainder of the school year. HMS and HHS students will pick up their meals in a set location as they exit school on Fridays. Elementary students will have their meals delivered to their classroom to bring home on Fridays.
Virtual students or other children under the age of 18 who would like to pick up free daily meals (lunch and breakfast the following day) should complete the Daily Meal Request form available on the district website - www.harrisonvilleschools.org.
