Eight RCPS schools to offer free meals this school year
This year, eight schools in Roanoke County will be providing free meals to all students through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) as implemented through the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
Schools participating in CEP this year are:
Herman L. Horn Elementary
Masons Cove Elementary
Mount Pleasant Elementary
Mountain View Elementary
W.E. Cundiff Elementary
All students attending a CEP school will be provided a nutritious breakfast and lunch meal each day at no cost. Households with students attending these schools will not be required to submit a meal application or to pay a fee for these students to receive meals.
All other schools will continue with the school meals program as in previous years. Roanoke County Public Schools encourages parents at these schools to consider applying for free and reduced meals, even if they think they may not qualify. Applications can be completed online at https://linqconnect.com.
Meal prices for the 2023-2024 school year will be as follows:
Student: $3.00 Adult: $4.75
Student: $1.50 Adult: $2.75 Milk: $0.50
For the 2023-2024 school year, reduced-price meal costs will be waived.
