Dear Tomorrow River School District Families, 

Tomorrow River School District is participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option (SSO)  for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means that our school is providing free meals to  all students! This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue  serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the  COVID-19 pandemic. Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved  free and reduced-price meal application, we are still distributing and processing them so  Tomorrow River School District families may qualify for P-EBT benefits as well as other  school funding. 

When your child participates in our healthy and delicious school meals program, it will save your  family time and money. At breakfast, all children are offered at least four food items from three  food components (grain, fruit, and fluid milk) and at lunch are offered five food components (grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and fluid milk). For your child’s breakfast to be free, they must  take at least three food items, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. For your child’s lunch  meal to be free, they must take at least three different food components, one of which is ½ cup  fruit or vegetable. Second meals, a la carte items, milk only, or meals that do not meet the  requirements described above will be charged a fee. 

Menus are always posted on our district website. 

Please contact me with any questions at 715-824-5521 x 1239 or email me at  jligman@amherst.k12.wi.us. 

Sincerely, 

Jess Ligman 

Food Service Director 

Tomorrow River School District
