All students in the Gloversville Enlarged School District will continue to receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2017-18 school year under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program.
USDA funding – made available through New York State – will make free meals available to all students in grades pre-k through 12 regardless of family income. No paperwork will be required from families for meals.
The free meals are made possible by the CEP, which eliminates the requirement of collecting household applications for free and reduced-price meals in high-needs school districts.
