District Wide -  CEP
or
Community Eligibility Provision
 
All students are currently illegible to receive 1-reimbursable breakfast and 1-reimbursable lunch free of charge through the Community Eligibility Provision or CEP program.
 
 
Students who take advantage of the * "full or Reimbursable Meal" will enjoy considerable value and cost savings.  A full meal equals more food on the tray as compared to purchasing individual food items at a-la-carte pricing. However; a la carte items may be purchased in addition to free breakfast and lunch.
 
 
A-la-carte prices have been adjusted for the 2017-18 school year to reflect price changes from our suppliers and to encourage healthy eating.
 
 
 

* What is a * "Full or Reimbursable Meal?" At lunch we offer students a minimum of 5 meal components including a meat or meat alternative, grain, vegetable, fruit, and a milk. Students must select at least three items (one being a fruit or vegetable) for the meal to qualify for "free meal status." If a student chooses less than three items or does not have a fruit or vegetable on their tray, we must charge the student a-la-carte pricing according to USDA regulations.
