Nutrition

Last year, the Child Nutrition Program (CNP) at IDEA Public Schools adopted the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP provides free breakfast and lunch to all children, at select schools, and eliminates the collection of meal applications. This adoption allows CNP to extend free lunch to all children at selected schools. This is in addition to the free breakfast already offered to all students.

This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals. Learn if your child qualifies for a free school lunch for the 2018-2019 school year.

If your campus is not on this list, we ask that you please complete the free-and-reduced-lunch (FARM) application online at htts://schoolcafe.com/, or fill out the proper form and drop it off at your campus before the first day of school.
