Government shutdown-cafeteria benefits for LCTA families
With the government shutdown impacting many of our families, ACPS school nutrition services encourage parents to submit an application for meal benefits at www.schoolcafe.com. While there is no prohibition on households applying for benefits during a furlough, School Nutrition Services would process the application in a manner that reflects the unique circumstances of the family. For example, children with parents or guardians who are not receiving income must indicate their income as zero ‘0’ or leave the field blank.

Note: Lovelines will be by online order/upload of photo. No paper form submissions.
