National School Lunch / Breakfast Programs

  APPLICATIONS | CLAIM FORMS | WEBINARS | NUMBERED MEMOS | CONTACT

Every school day, more than 26 million children in 99,800 schools across the country eat a nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunch provided through the National School Lunch Program. More than half of these children receive the meal free or at a reduced price.

US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recognizes the program’s national health responsibility to provide school meals that meet nutrition objectives. USDA updated the policy in the 1997 school year so that school meals would comply with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The NSLP provides cash reimbursement and commodity foods for meals served in non-profit food services in elementary and secondary schools, and in residential child care institutions.

School Breakfast Program (SBP) provides cash reimbursement to schools for meals served, much the same as the School Lunch Program. Children eligible to receive a lunch at free or reduced price are also eligible to receive breakfast at the same rate.

The program operates in more than 72,000 schools and institutions, serving a daily average of some 7.4 million children.

Community Eligibility Provision

Community eligibility is the newest opportunity for schools with high percentages of low-income children to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. It increases participation by children in the school meal programs, reduces labor costs for schools, and increases federal revenues. In short, it allows for a healthier student body and a healthier school meal budget.

Included in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, community eligibility completely eliminates paper applications. Instead, schools are reimbursed through a formula based on the number of “identified students” – those certified without application for free school meals because they are in foster care or Head Start, are homeless, migrant or living in households that receive SNAP/Food Stamps, TANF cash assistance or the Food Distribution on Indian Reservation benefits. Community eligibility has been available in Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan since the start of the 2011-2012 school year. Washington D.C., New York, Ohio and West Virginia began offering the option to school districts in the 2012-2013 school year. Georgia, Florida, Maryland and Massachusetts have been added for the 2013-2014 school year. Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, all schools nationwide that meet the 40 percent identified student threshold will be eligible to participate in this option.

To promote and disseminate information about the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), State agencies are required to notify Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) of eligibility for CEP and provide the procedures for interested and eligible LEAs to participate. A later notification and list of information by site must also be provided to LEAs.

Only school sites that offer both School Breakfast and School Lunch can participate in Community Eligibility.

The State agency has notified LEAs on this list of their districtwide eligibility to LEAs in the following categories
• LEAs with a districtwide identified student percentage of at least 40%
• LEAs with a districtwide identified student percentage greater than or equal to 30% but less than 40% .

Additional information is also on the USDA website at http://www.fns.usda.gov/school-meals/community-eligibility-provision and on the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) at http://frac.org/federal-foodnutrition-programs/national-school-lunch-program/community-eligibility/.

2014-15 applications for free and reduced price meals are in the attachments section of the agreement packet.
