2018-19 Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Meals for all HCSD students


The HCSD Food Services Department is pleased to announce that it will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision for the 2018-19 school year.

Community Eligibility is a successful federal option that allows schools in high-poverty areas to serve meals at no charge to help reduce hunger and streamline their school meal programs.  No student application is required.

Each student will continue to have an individual school meal account and will enter their Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to receive their FREE meals.

Individual student accounts will continue to be maintained thereby allowing parents/guardians to prepay for additional entrees including sandwiches, salads, and yogurt parfaits, and/or other items such as ice cream, fruits, and beverages.  Prepayments can be sent on a weekly or monthly basis. Checks should be made payable to HCSD Food Service.

“Community Eligibility is an exciting new opportunity for schools and states to create hunger-free environments for learning, and it is working. Higher participation in school meals means children can concentrate on their lessons and not on their empty bellies,” said Madeleine Levin, Senior Policy Analyst at the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). “Particularly noteworthy is Community Eligibility’s ability to increase the number of children eating breakfast, an underutilized program that many schools are seeking to expand.”

Benefits of Community Eligibilty


Looking Local

A woman and fresh vegetablesWhen we plan our school meal menus, we look local whenever possible. You may have heard of “Farm-to-Table,” which means sourcing the freshest ingredients from local farms. Well, we like to call it “Farm-to-School.” By looking local, we’re able to offer students the highest quality fruits and vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy, while also helping to sustain our local farming economies. The result is colorful meals that are farm-fresh!


Health and Nutrition Resources

While the Hudson City School District ensures that students receive a healthy meal and exercise during school hours, it is important that students and families eat nutritious foods and engage in physical activity at home. There are plenty of great resources on the web to help you build a healthier lifestyle.

The U.S. Government's SuperTracker tool allows you to develop a personalized nutrition plan and track your foods and physical activities.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Choose My Plate blog provides plenty of recipes and food information for good nutrition. Their kids' site has lots of games and activities so you can have fun while learning about healthy living.
