Free Meals for Children Distributed this Summer

Laveen Child Nutrition Services will be serving free breakfast and lunch to children in the Laveen community at all nine Laveen schools through the Summer Meal program.

Children 18 years and younger may enjoy a nutritious breakfast and lunch in our school cafeterias. All kids’ meals are free. There are no income requirements and you do not need to register. Children do not need to be enrolled in a Laveen school to participate. The summer meal program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Summer meal service begins May 30, 2023. Meals will be served in the school cafeteria on select dates and times. Curbside meal pickup is no longer offered due to the expiration of federal waivers that permitted this practice. Adult meals are available for purchase; breakfast is $2.50 and lunch is $3.50.

Visit our Summer Meal page for the schedule and more details.

Donate to Laveen Schools and Claim a Credit on your 2022 taxes

You can reduce the amount you owe in state taxes by making a donation to Laveen schools through Arizona’s Public School Tax Credit Program. Tax credit contributions may only be used to support character education and fee-based extracurricular activities such as after-school tutoring and clubs, academic enrichment, field trips, fine art programs, and athletics.

For every dollar you donate, the amount you owe on your Arizona taxes will be that much less. This means you can reduce the amount you owe before the deadline or increase the amount of your refund if you have tax liabilities for 2022. If you do not owe taxes, the amount you donate may be carried forward for up to five years to offset future tax liabilities.

Couples filing jointly may donate any amount up to $400. Individuals may contribute up to $200.

The deadline to donate and claim a tax credit on your 2022 taxes is April 18, 2023.
