SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KCAU) – The South Sioux City Community Schools (SSCCS) announced they will not be charging meals to enrolled students in the upcoming school year.

According to a press release from SSCCS, meals will be served during the 2021-2022 school year for no charge to enrolled students.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved of using the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the school year. The SSO is a program that lets schools provide meals at no cost.
