No charge for student meals in Levy County

-A A +A

Suzette Cook, Reporter

The School Board of Levy County announced that all students will be served breakfast and lunch at no charge at the following sites during the 2019-2020 school year: Bronson Elementary School, Bronson Middle/High School, Cedar Key School, Chiefland Elementary School, Chiefland Middle/High School, Joyce Bullock Elementary School, Nature Coast Middle School, Whispering Winds Charter School, Williston Elementary School, Williston Middle/High School, and Yankeetown School.

According to Julia Oberst, coordinator of Food and Nutrition Services for the SBLC, this will be the sixth year that students qualify for “no charge” meals thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. “Students are entered into the Florida Direct Certification website which is with the FDA,”and are awarded “no charge” status based on State eligibility criteria, Oberst said, and added that she is staying abreast of national news about one school district threatening to turn parents in to Child Protective Services (CPS) if they don’t pay their lunch bills.
