We are so excited to report that the Melba School District has been approved for a Federal Covid-19 Lunch Program Waiver that allows us to serve ALL enrolled students FREE LUNCH and BREAKFAST!   Students will continue to be served the same nutritious meals they have already been receiving! This waiver does not cover the cost for seconds or parts of a meal (ie extra milk, meat or grain items, milk for a cold lunch).  However, as always, extra fruits and vegetables will be served for free.  Please note that all fines accrued before October 22nd, 2020, must still be paid as the funds available for this program cannot be used towards these fees.  We appreciate your support of the Melba School District Lunch Program.  If you have any questions, please contact Julie Allison at jallison@melbaschools.org or 208 495-1141 ext 1029.
