September 2015

Dear Parent,
Every child needs a healthy, filling meal to learn. Comstock Public Schools offers nutritious meals to children each school day, often at a free or reduced price for those who need it. We participate in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program (NSLBP), a federally funded program that helps children receive free or reduced meals. Over 224 billion lunches have been served to students in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program since it was founded in 1946.

What exactly is a free or reduced price meal?
These meals are the exact same as what other children are served – there is no “reduced meal.” The price of the meal is reduced or waived for families based on income.

Does my family qualify?
More families are qualified than you may think. To find out if your family qualifies for the free or reduced priced meals, please take five minutes to fill out a free National School Lunch and Breakfast Program Application. You can stop by any school office, or log on to www.lunchapp.com to fill out an online meal application.

If you have trouble completing your school meal application or have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Food Service Office at 250-8719.

At Chartwells School Dining Services, nourishing students is not only our business; it is our commitment to the communities in which we serve. We want to make sure students achieve their full potential.
