  • Food For Thought- Donations for student meals

    Want to make a difference for the students in the Liberty Public Schools community? Donate to the LPS Nutrition Services Lunch Fund! The LPS Nutrition Services team serve more than 8,000 meals a day. Many of our students’ parents struggle to pay for lunches, but may not qualify for free and reduced priced meals. As a district, we are committed to ensuring all of our students receive a nutritious lunch every day to help them stay healthy and focused on learning. Money donated to the LPS Lunch Fund will help pay off outstanding balances on students’ lunch accounts and allow Nutrition Services to continue to feed all students every day. If you would like to donate, please contact Susan St. Ama at susan.stama@lps53.org or at 816-736-5377. Thank you for your generous support of our students!
