Families will not need to complete an application to participate.

The remaining 61 schools will resume free breakfast for all students, under the Universal Free Breakfast Program. Students may also qualify for free lunch meals or reduced-price lunch meals for $0.40 based on their eligibility.

Parents do not need to complete an application to qualify for meals at the 167 schools operating under CEP.

To apply for Free or Reduced-Price Meals, families must complete an application at Approved applications may help that student’s school receive additional funding to cover the cost of materials, supplies, staffing, professional development for teachers and staff, community outreach and much more.
