Direct Certification is needed!

Shared by Coni D. - 8/8/2019

We are in an urban area where sometimes we question the ability for the free and reduced applications to be completed. With direct certification we do not have to worry, because we know that students in need will automatically get a nutritious meal. This change does not only have an impact on students, but we would have to hire additional staff to assist with the meal application processes as well as incur additional debt from unpaid meal charges from those you can't afford to pay but no application is submitted.
