Local school and political officials are calling on Congress to address the free meal program for all students, which is slated to end before school begins this fall. Following several years of free meals, many St. Lawrence County parents will likely return to footing the bill for food their child consumes from the cafeteria. Federal nutrition waivers, which began during the pandemic, permitted school districts to provide free meals to every student, regardless of their household income. It is expected to end this summer. North Country school leaders have expressed disappointment that the federal waiver program was not renewed.
