Thanks to a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System and Chartwells are now able to offer a free lunch for all students within the Xavier System through December 31st, 2020. This means that a free, school-provided lunch is available for all students.
Meals will include an entree with assorted fruits and vegetables, along with a choice of 1% chocolate or 1% white milk. A la carte (chips, water, extra entrée, cookies, etc), including any milk purchased outside of the full meal, will cost extra and is NOT included with the free lunch.
Lunch account payments should still be made as A la Carte purchases do not qualify for the Free Lunch.
We also encourage parents to pay off negative balances at this time. .
Families should continue to submit the free and reduced applications as the waiver runs out at the end of December and Xavier will begin charging normal prices starting in January.
