    SMMUSD Receives Waiver to Provide Free Student Meals
    USDA extends free meals for kids through the end of the 2022 school year.

    Students in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District may continue to receive free meals, regardless of qualification for the free and reduced lunch program, thanks to an extension of the USDA free summer meal program. SMMUSD has received this waiver through June 10, 2022.
