South Haven Public Schools is pleased to announce that all district students will have the added benefit of a tasty and nutritious breakfast and lunch free of charge each day for the 2019-20 school year! This is made possible through participation in the Community Eligibility Provision which was authorized by Congress as part of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

The program became available for schools nation-wide during the 2014-15 school year and South Haven implemented the program in 2015 with a limited number of schools. Gradually, the district has had the opportunity to offer this program at an increased number of schools until most recently, the Board of Education voted to expand the program district-wide at their regular board of education meeting last week!

Since 2015, the program has proven successful with an additional 1317 breakfasts and 7169 lunches served last year at Baseline Middle School alone! We look forward to the continued increase in healthy meal participation across our district for the 2019-20 school year!
