FREE LUNCH FOR ALL: Holy Spirit Catholic School is participating in the National School Lunch Program’s initiative to provide free meals to children ages 1-18 in our community as an open site until the end of the school year. Parents or guardians are encouraged to participate in this program at the school where their child normally attends school, however, if the school site is not accessible to the family, HSCS is proud to be able to provide meals to those in need. Students or parents/guardians may utilize the Holy Spirit's "grab and go" lunch service from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm following the school's calendar. HSCS will record names, age, and school enrollment information for children enrolled outside of our organization to ensure that no duplicate meals are provided. Please call the school office at 208-232-5367 by 9 a.m. on the day that you wish to receive a meal so that appropriate quantities are available. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
