Schools to Offer Free Meals
All Barnwell District 45 students will receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2016-2017 school year. The school board approved participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that Congress authorized in 2010 to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students in schools with high poverty rates. CEP replaces the free and reduced lunch program the district has been using where certain students who met required criteria received free lunches. District 45 students already receive a breakfast daily, but the free lunch provision takes effect in August when students return.Barnwell School District 45
