Since implementation of the Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act, every student has access to a free breakfast and lunch daily. In addition, we serve breakfast in the classroom to students at our elementary and middle schools. Our breakfast in the classroom program has received both State and Federal recognition.
