LCSD will continue to serve free meals to students

The Liberty Central School District will continue to offer free breakfast and lunch to students through its participation with the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2018-2019 school year.

Section 104(a) of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 amended section 11(a)(1) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1759a(a)(1))(the law) to provide an alternative to household applications for free and reduced-price meals in local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with increased levels of low-income students. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision.

All students enrolled in the Liberty Central School District may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them. Families will not have to fill out meal applications, but by filling out this form, you will be able to help determine the district’s eligibility for additional state and federal grants.

Breakfast and lunch meals follow the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for healthy school meals.

For information about the district’s food service department and cafeteria menus, contact Food Services Director Dara Smith. For more information about the Community Eligibility Provision and how the district has qualified, please contact School Business Official Georgia Gonzalez.
