National School Lunch and Breakfast Program

CEP School Lunch and Breakfast Program
Posted on 08/18/2015
LunchGATES High School & New Pathways students will receive breakfast & lunch free of charge through the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Program part of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.

In a CEP school, ALL enrolled students receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost during the school year, regardless of family income. The meals served meet the federal regulations. Please remember that only the complete meal is available at no charge. If your student wishes to get just milk they may purchase it for $.55.
In order to secure additional funding and continue current funding you will be asked to fill out a Family Income Survey again this year. This Family Income Survey provides your child’s school a way to collect household income information when free/reduced price applications are not collected.
The information you provide by returning the Family Income Survey impacts funding that each school receives from the federal and state government.

Surverys will go home with students the first week of school. Please fill out the survery and return it as soon as possible.
