Media Release for Free and Reduced-Price Meals

                           Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)—2018-2019

 

 

The Sulphur Springs Independent School District, Child Nutrition Department  is announcing a change to its policy for serving meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for DOUGLASS ECLC, BARBARA BUSH, BOWIE, LAMAR, AND TRAVIS  for the school year 2018-2019. These schools qualify to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program and will provide breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

 

Sincerely,

Veronica Arnold

Director of Child Nutrition
