Sylacauga City Schools to provide free meals to all students during 2023-24 school year

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga City School system has confirmed that all enrolled students will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost for the upcoming school year.

Through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), the district is helping to eliminate barriers to healthy meals and streamline the process of free or affordable meals. By participating in the CEP, Sylacauga City Schools will no longer require Free and Reduced forms or fees for meals.

The program, part of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, allows schools in low-income areas to offer free meals to all students, ensuring they come to class well-nourished and ready to learn.

Kelley Wassermann, the Child Nutrition Program Director of the school system, encouraged parents to contact her office for more information. The district also emphasized its commitment to equal opportunities, stating that no child will face discrimination based on various factors.

The initiative will begin in the upcoming 2023-24 school year, relieving families of financial burden and ensuring that every child at Sylacauga City Schools can enjoy nutritious meals going forward.
