Salem School Food Services - Welcome to the Cougar Cafe!
During the transition back to normal school operations in SY2022-23, the Salem School District has opted into the School Meals Assistance Revenue for Transition (SMART) funds providing meals (breakfast and lunch) at no cost for all students at the beginning of the school year. Please note that meals at no cost to all students are unlikely to last all year and are subject to the availability of district funds. Since the availability of meals at no cost will expire when all funds have been expended, it is critical that households submit a free and reduced-priced meal application as soon as possible to determine a student’s eligibility for this school year and avoid unpaid meal charges.
Completing and submitting an application will also help your child’s school raise additional funds to help us make meals available to all students at no cost for as long as possible. The district will notify parents and guardians of the date when students who are not directly certified or have no approved application on file will be expected to pay for their meals. Note: Households that do not submit a free or reduced-price application or whose child is not directly certified, will automatically default to full pay when the SMART funds conclude.
