THE CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAM
Breakfast and lunch will be served in ALL elementary schools and secondary schools. Free and reduced price meals will be available for qualifying students in accordance with the policy adopted by the Board of Education and regulations of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Sale of foods in competition with the School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program will be prohibited in all schools in the Jackson County School System in compliance with Public Law 95-166, Section 17. Cashiers will accept payment by the day, week, month, or semester. Parents may select the most suitable method of payment.
ALL STUDENTS ARE OFFERED A VARIETY OF MILK CHOICES.
Woodville High School will participate in the Child Nutrition Program Community Eligibility Program in the 2016 - 2017 school year. This means that the school will provide free breakfast and lunch to all students throughout the school year.
How does Community Eligibility work?
Community eligibility enables schools to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all students and eliminates the need for schools to collect paper applications by basing reimbursement levels on “identified students”. Identified students are either:
- Directly certified based on their household’s participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF, or cash assistance), or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR).
- Considered homeless, migrant, runaway, Head Start, or foster children.
CEP schools must provide one Free Breakfast & one Free Lunch daily to all enrolled students.
• Students will still be required to enter their lunch pin number to receive their meal. Pin entries are used to keep track how many meals are served and must be counted daily for recording purposes.
• Students will still have the ability to add money to their accounts in order to purchase any food items outside the reimbursable meal, such as snacks or seconds. Students can still have money added to their accounts via PayPam.
