AISD to Offer All Students Free Meals For 2018-2019 School Year 

  

Through the Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), Angleton ISD will provide breakfast and lunch for the 2018-2019 school year to all children at no charge.

 

AISD is changing its policy for serving meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 18-19 school year. All campuses have been accepted to operate the CEP offered by the USDA and will now provide free breakfast and lunch to all children.

  

This system will eliminate the collection of meal applications for free and reduced-price student meals as well as collecting payment for basic student meals. Add-ons, including chips, ice cream and other snacks will still be available for an extra cost. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

  

For additional information please contact: Amy Barta, Director of Child Nutrition, abarta@angletonisd.net, 979-864-8012
