About

The Sparta Area School District believes that a healthy, well-nourished and physically active child is better prepared to learn.

2022-23 School Year

The Sparta Area School District will no longer be able to serve FREE meals to all students in the 2022-2023 school year. Congress rejected the federal funding that supported this program.

A new free and reduced meal application MUST be submitted and approved in order to receive free or reduced-price meals during the 2022-2023 school year. Please watch for the Back-to-School mailing from Nutrition Services in late July.   A copy of the 2022-2023 free and reduced application will be in that mailing. It is important for families to fill out the free and reduced-price meal application, as this information helps determine additional funding for enhanced educational opportunities for your child’s school.

Paid meal pricing for the 2022-2023 school year will be available in July pending Board approval.

Thank you for your support of the Sparta Area School District Nutrition Program.
