MSD students eligible for free Breakfast, Lunch

Released by Delaware Department of Education

As a new school year begins, all students that attend Milford School District will be able to eat one school breakfast and/or one lunch at no cost due to USDA’s Community Eligibility Provision. Community Eligibility Provision was enacted as a result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act 2010 and provides universal meal service to students in schools/districts that qualify. The CEP is an alternative to collecting, approving, and verifying household eligibility applications for free and reduced price meal benefits. If a school has an Identified Student Percentage of at least 40 %, the entire school qualifies for the CEP.

Good nutrition can contribute to the academic success of students. USDA encourages districts/schools that qualify for the CEP to consider this option and the many benefits it provides:

• Reduced administrative cost and burden in preparing, distributing, and processing annual free and reduced applications
• Streamlined meal service at the Point of Service
• No school meal debt, all students eat free for one breakfast and one lunch
• No overt identification of student eligibility
• Alternative feeding such as Breakfast in the Classroom and Grab & Go easier to implement

For more information, please contact the Milford Child Nutrition Department at 302-422-1637
