Clarkston School District Implementing No Charge Breakfast and Lunch Program for the Upcoming Year

CLARKSTON – Clarkston School District announced today that they will be implementing a program available to select schools or districts participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).

What does this mean for children attending the Clarkston School District?

Through the CEP, all enrolled students of Clarkston School District are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge each day of the 2022-2023 school year. Students will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

The district will still be requesting a Family Income Survey from households with a student participating in the CEP, however, receipt of free breakfast and lunch meals does not depend on returning it. Completing the application is still necessary for other programs and fee waivers and may be used to determine if your household is eligible for these additional benefits.  The Family Income Survey will be available to parents in the early Fall.
