Free Student meals

Kent County Public Schools is fortunate to be able to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. KCPS is able to provide free meals at all five schools through a program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
 
There is still a charge for snacks and any additional food, like second meals, beyond the initial breakfast and lunch serving.
 
While the benefit of the CEP program is immense to our community, the lack of information that is generally available from the Free and Reduced application could hinder other beneficial programs, grants and funding opportunities.
 
KCPS is asking that you take a moment to complete the following form so that we can have the information needed to pursue every opportunity for our students.
