Free and Reduced Meal Information
Breakfast is free for all students at all schools, courtesy of the Maryland Meals for Achievement program.
Lunch costs $2.50 for Galena Elementary School students and $2.75 for Kent County Middle School and Kent County High School students. Student meals are free at H.H. Garnet and Rock Hall Elementary Schools thanks to the Community Eligibility Program — scroll down for more information on that program.
Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-priced meals. While reduced prices for meals would be $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch, the federal government now requires the state to cover those costs — making meals free for students who would qualify for reduced-price meals.
We are asking families to please review and fill out the meal forms below:
Community Eligibility Provision Program for Garnet and Rock Hall
Kent County Public Schools is fortunate to be able to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students that attend H.H. Garnet and Rock Hall elementary schools. KCPS is able to provide this through a program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which is available through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Due to the fact that all meals are provided at no cost to all students, no Free and Reduced Meal applications should be submitted for any student that attends Garnet or Rock Hall.
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.
