Win-E-Mac School Facing Cuts Due to a Lack in Free & Reduced Lunch Applications

Erskine, MN — The Win-E-Mac School District is strongly encouraging all families, regardless of income, to fill out an application for the Free and Reduced Lunch program. As part of COVID relief, all families are currently receiving a free lunch, but the need to fill an application is there as the district is now facing potential cuts. Win-E-Mac Principal Kevin McKeever says the district actually receives funding based on those applications, and as of right now because they are down on applications is looking at revenue losses of more than $120,000. 

Principal McKeever says parents shouldn’t feel too prideful when it comes to applying for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Even if they do qualify, they don’t have to accept it.
