All Students to Receive Free School Meals

The Council Bluffs Community School District is pleased to be able to offer a new program in eight Council Bluffs schools. This program provides free breakfast and lunch each school day to every child in eight district schools.These include Bloomer, Carter Lake, Edison, Franklin, Longfellow, Roosevelt, Rue and Wilson Middle School. Students at the other district schools may still apply for free or reduced-priced meals, but will need to meet income eligibility guidelines.

Read more or Click Here for a Frequently Asked Questions informational sheet.

Because of this, families in these schools do not have to complete and return the Lunch Program form mailed a few weeks ago to your home. However, there is a Fee Waiver Eligibility Household Income Survey families should complete and return to school. This will be used to determine if your child’s fees (such as $30 textbook fee at the elementary level) can also be waived. This form should be returned to school at the Back to School Night or on the first day of school. Please know the information shared will be kept confidential.

This free breakfast and lunch program was initiated by the national Healthy Kids Act; it has been piloted in 11 other states and has proven to be beneficial for students and families. The Council Bluffs Community School District was recently approved for this program, and will receive federal reimbursement to help fund the free meals at eight schools in the district.

If we can answer questions for you about this program, please feel free to call 712-328-6420 or access the form and a Frequently Asked Questions document HERE.
