Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, St. John’s Lutheran School is implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) while participating in the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. All enrolled students of St. John’s Lutheran School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.
When your child participates in our healthy and delicious school meals program it will save your family time and money. At breakfast children are offered five food items (grain, fruit and/or vegetable, and fluid milk). For your child’s meal to be free, they must take at least three different food items, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. Click here to view the current menu.
A-la-carte milk does not meet the requirements described above and will be charged $0.30 per carton. St. John’s uses a pre-paid food account from which each day’s purchase is deducted. Please make sure your student has money on deposit in their account if they are going to take a milk to go with a meal from home. Contact the office for account balances and payments. Click here to read St. John’s Unpaid Food Policy.
Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on a free and reduced-price meal application, St. John’s is distributing the Alternate Income form. Completing the Alternate Income form provides information used to determine if your family qualifies for P-EBT benefits, Title Services, field trip discounts and other school funding. If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at 414-541-5881 or email@example.com.
