Surry County School Nutrition is proud to announce the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended free meals for children ages 1-18 through December 31, 2020, enabling summer meal programs providing free breakfasts and free lunches to continue operating. What this means for students in the Surry County School System is that the free, USDA meal services families benefited from during the spring and summer of 2020 will continue.
