FREE Lunch & Breakfast for ALL Comstock Students!

FREE Lunch & Breakfast for ALL Comstock Students!
Posted on 09/04/2019
FREE Lunch & Breakfast for ALL Comstock Students!Comstock Public Schools is pleased to announce that all Comstock school buildings will again be participating in a program available to schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2019-20 School Year.

The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to their household each day of the 2019-20 school year. This also eliminates the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. Student will still pay cash, or use a meal account, for additional purchases. Additional purchases include second entrees, bottled beverages, a la carte items, and snacks, to name a few.

The district is asking families to fill out and sign a Household Information Survey, which is needed for administrative purposes, but does not determine eligibility for school meals. This survey is critical in determining the amount of money the school receives from a variety of other State and Federal programs.

Please fill out the online survey.

One survey per household!

If you have questions about this program, please contact the Food Service Office at 269-250-8719, or reach out to Holly Pence, Director of Dining Services for Chartwells School Dining Services, via e-mail at PenceH@ComstockPS.org.
