Greenville schools added to free meal program

Oct 30, 2023 12:11 pm

Liz Montgomery reports for Porcupine Soup that Greenville Central School District students will no longer have to pay for school meals beginning Nov. 1. A free breakfast and a free lunch are now available to all students there. The district said in a statement, “After a lengthy application process, the district was approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision after the U.S. Department of Agriculture expanded access by schools to the federal CEP of the National School Lunch Program.” Before, at least 40 percent of students had to live in households participating in certain income-based federal assistance programs to be eligible for the free meal program, but that was lowered to 25 percent recently, allowing Greenville to participate. Catskill, Cairo-Durham, and Hunter-Tannersville schools already partipate in the program. Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
