MEDIA RELEASE FOR FREE MEALS FOR CEP
National School Lunch/Breakfast Program
School Year 2022-2023
The RATON PUBLIC SCHOOLS announced today it will operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the [2022-2023] school year.
Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
