logoFamilies can expect to see a ten-cent increase for elementary school meals in 2017-2018 school year due to a federal mandate under the National School Lunch Program. Effective August 22, 2017, paid lunch meals for elementary schools will be $2.35 versus $2.25 from the previous year. This federal mandate does not affect prices for intermediate and high schools or persons receiving meals under the national free and reduced meal program.

Breakfast: $1.25
Lunch: $2.35
Free and Reduced: $0.40

The school district is also reminding families that they need to file a new application to participate in the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program within 30 days of the start of school. If a new application has not been received and processed within the 30 days, the student will return to full paying status. Applications are available online at mealbenefits.ccisd.net.
