All Grundy County students will receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2014-2015 school year.
At their June 26 meeting, Grundy County School Board members voted to participate in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP). This program offers a four year reimbursement to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.
As a part of CEP, parents will no longer be required to fill out household applications for free or reduced lunch and no verification of free and reduced applications is required.
Parents will save approximately $540 for each elementary student and $585 for each high school student during the school year.
