Dear Parent/Guardian:
The Rochester City School District will continue for the 2013-14 school year to participate in the Community Eligibility Option under the National School Lunch Program. Under the CEO all students receive a breakfast/lunch at no charge for the entire school year. However to determine eligibility to receive additional benefits for your child (ren), you will need to complete a household and Income form.

   NEW - Nutritional Standards for School Meals!

Through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by the First Lady and signed by President Obama, USDA is making the first major changes in school meals in 15 years, which will help us raise a healthier generation of children.  The new standards align school meals with the latest nutrition science and the real world circumstances of America’s schools. These responsible reforms do what’s right for children’s health in a way that’s achievable in schools across the Nation. 

Here are  links to highlights and details of the program and what it means to the health and wellness of your child -
