Welcome to Liberty Public Schools Nutrition Services
Liberty Public Schools is currently opperating under the Federal Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the school closure for COVID-19 shut down. No Cost meals are available for all children through age 18. Drive up meals are avaiable at Ridgeview Elementary, Alexander Doniphan, Warren Hills and Liberty Oaks Elemntary. CHildren do not need to be enrolled in Liberty Public Schools or in summer school to pick up a child meal. Breakfast and Lunch will be provide when the meals are picked up. The menu is availble at SchoolCafe.com/Libertyps.
Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020, families that qualify for free or reduced price meals at school may be eligible for a new one-time Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) of up to $302 per child (Pre-Kindergarten–Grade 12) to help cover the cost of meals students have eaten at home on days that schools have been closed. Students can receive P-EBT benefits even if they have been or continue to receive meals provided by the school district during the school closure. If your child was not previously eligible for free or reduced price meals, but you have now lost income, you may be eligible to receive P-EBT benefits (review the P-EBT Eligibility Criteria document below).
The benefit is placed on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card families use to buy food. If you received Food Stamp (SNAP) benefits in March, do not apply for these new/additional benefits. The full $302 will automatically be loaded to your existing EBT card. If you did not receive Food Stamp (SNAP) benefits in March, you must apply for this benefit by June 30, 2020 (see link below)

We provide high quality, nutritionally balanced, and affordable breakfast and lunches to more than 12,000 students daily across our district.

The Liberty Education Foundation has launched a fundraising effort to pay off meal debt accrued by Liberty Public Schools families throughout the district who now qualify for free or reduced meals. LPS is committed to serving all students a breakfast and lunch so that learning is always first priority in our students minds. To help continue to provide these meals to all, your donation is appreciated!
Graduating seniors with account balances may also donate the remaining balance to this fund! Call our office at 736-5375 to complete this step. Click the link to learn more about the Liberty Cares Fund or to donate! https://libertyeducationfoundation.org/studentmeals
