Food Service Updates
Food Services Update 08/03/2023
For the 2023-2024 school year, the Office of Food Services will continue to offer scratch menu items at all of our school cafeterias. Menus can be found on SchoolCafe.com.
If your student attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school, they are able to receive breakfast and lunch meals at no cost. Please visit this site to see if you child’s school is qualified as a CEP school.
School Year 2023-2024 Free & Reduced Price Meal Applications are now available. As a reminder, every school year requires a new application.
Free & Reduced Price Meal Direct Certification approval letters will be emailed to eligible households by August 4, 2023. If you did not receive an approval letter and need an eligibility letter to obtain free or reduced meal prices or other benefits, such as dental service, childcare, etc., please fill out a Free & Reduced Price Meal Application at SchoolCafé.com. Applying is easy and completely confidential.
If you were approved for the 2022-2023 school year, your child's 2022-2023 Free & Reduced Price Meal Application carryover eligibility will expire on Oct. 11, 2023. If a 2023-2024 school year application is not processed by our office by Oct. 11, your child's cafeteria account will default to full price status.
