Rapoport Academy to Serve Breakfast and Lunch at No Cost to All Enrolled Students

Free Meals Will Be Offered District-WideThrough the USDA’s Community Eligibility Program 

Release date: Friday, July 29, 2022

Rapoport Academy Public School will have a district-wide change to its policy for serving meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), Rapoport Academy will provide breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. 

While the Audre and Bernard Rapoport Elementary Academy campus and the Quinn Middle School campus have participated in this program since the 2019-2020 school year, Rapoport Academy qualified to operate CEP district-wide adding the Paul and Jane Meyer Public High School campus to the program.

This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
