Breakfast and Lunch Information

Both breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students at Central Road School who would like to eat the food served each day. Students at CR are offered FREE breakfast and lunch daily starting the first day of school as part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, funded by the federal government. Students may bring a lunch from home if they prefer to do so.

What does this mean for families attending the CEP school like Central Road?

Again, all enrolled students will receive a free breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household. Your child(ren) will be able to participate without having to pay a fee, but we ask that you still complete the Fee Waiver form here (Spanish form) to determine if your family qualifies for other financial assistance such as school fees, athletic, and activity fee waivers. Again, completing the application is still necessary for other programs and assists with funding for educational programs in District 15.

Information from our Nutritional Services Department may be found HERE for your review.
