Tongie Summer Lunch Crew
FREE LUNCH OFFERED IN TONGANOXIE THIS SUMMER!!
The Tongie Summer Lunch Crew program, offered by the School District and funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture will provide free lunch daily to youth’s age 1 to 18 years of age.  This means any youth, whether they are a student in the district or not; whether they are on the district’s free and reduced lunch program or not; whether they live in the state of Kansas or not.  So if there are families and grandparents that have grandchildren in from out of town….they are welcome to eat a free lunch!
The location for the Tongie Summer Lunch Crew program will be:
Tonganoxie Middle School,  824 Washington
11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Menu offerings will include stuffed crust pizza, cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets, cheese quesadilla, and there
will be an assortment of sides such as salad and fruit along with milk.

There are a few guidelines:  Adults are welcome to purchase a lunch for $3.40, however adults are prohibited from eating from their child’s tray and food cannot be carried out of the dining room area.  Additionally, there will only be one meal with predetermined side choices offered each day, so parents will need to be responsible for monitoring any food allergies their child may have themselves.
The Summer Lunch Menu is posted on the District website:
