The Philadelphia Public School District will implement the Community Eligibility Provision regarding school meals in the 2016-2017 school year. Community Eligibility was authorized by Congress as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and allows participating schools to offer healthy, free lunches and breakfasts to ALL students without requiring their families to complete meal applications.

ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED AT PHILADELPHIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, PHILADELPHIA MIDDLE SCHOOL, AND PHILADELPHIA HIGH SCHOOL WILL RECEIVE FREE BREAKFAST AND FREE LUNCH EACH DAY OF SCHOOL REGARDLESS OF THEIR HOUSEHOLD INCOME.

Parents nor students will be required to complete any paperwork to receive the benefit. If you have any questions about this program, you may contact Stacey Peeler, Philadelphia Public Schools Food Service Director at 601.656.2955 or speeler@phillytornadoes.com.
