Free Meals for Children Extended through End of 2020-2021 School Year

Canyons School District is extending its free meal service through the end of the school year.

This means all students — whether they are learning in the classroom or remotely — can receive free lunch and breakfast through June, 30, 2021.

There’s no need to apply for the U.S. Department of Agriculture-authorized benefit, which was originally set to expire at the end of December. All students are automatically eligible.

Canyons District is committed to ensuring no child goes hungry and has sponsored free meals throughout the pandemic. The USDA waiver provides the flexibility and funding to ensure nutritious meals continue to reach all children at a time of rising food insecurity.

Schools will continue serving meals in their cafeterias per the staggered schedules they’ve established to promote physical distancing. Online and at-home learners may pick up meals at specific times and locations as designated by each school. Additionally, these families may pick up meals for any siblings who are 18 years of age or younger. Schools ask, however, that they preorder their meals so that the kitchens know how much food to prepare.

‘Fizzy-Lifting’ Inspiration – CSD Sixth-Grader Invents ‘Real Soda’ for Sale in Utah Stores

Treat this as a cautionary tale for all the students who ever wondered if that English assignment was worth their time.

About a year ago, Butler Middle School student Emery Gallegos was assigned to read Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and invent a soda — Willy Wonka-style. She and her sixth-grade peers were told there would be a competition to choose by popular vote one bubbly concoction to represent their school, and that the winning flavor would be made into a real soda to be produced and bottled in California and “sold” in the school’s “student incentive” store.

Gallegos didn’t expect to win, and she certainly didn’t expect her soda — a tangy berry-flavored twist on lemonade dubbed “Sunset Blend” — would be such a commercial hit. The pandemic delayed production of the soda by several months. But cases of the bright-red bottles arrived at select Utah and California retailers this fall, and the small-batch soda maker Real Soda in Real Bottles reports they’re flying off the shelves.
