The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.
SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM
The School Breakfast Program provides cash assistance to states to operate nonprofit breakfast programs in schools and residential childcare institutions. The Food and Nutrition service administers the SBP at the Federal level. State education agencies administer the SBP at the state level, and local school food authorities operate the Program in schools.
Students that were participating in the National School Lunch Program at the end of the school year, will still be eligible to receive their benefits for the first 30 operating days of the new school year. At that time, the student's benefits will be dropped and a new application must be completed. Applications are available at each campus in the Administration Office (or) at the Offices of Child Nutrition, and online at schoollunchapp.com.
