Temporary Free Breakfast
Due to one-time pandemic funds received in the 2022-23 school year, the Ames Community School District is in a financial position to offer free breakfast for all students at the five elementary schools, middle school, and high school starting January 4, 2023. Free breakfast will only be available through the remainder of the 2022-23 school year.
On January 4, regardless of income status, students in grades kindergarten through 12 will not be charged for school breakfast. The free breakfasts are only available for students in attendance at school. While the District cannot permanently provide free breakfast to all students, it is fortunate to be able to provide temporary economic relief for its students and families for the remainder of the current 2022-23 school year.
