Summer food service meals remain at Cadott

Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cadott Community School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).

The (SFSP), funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, and when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.
