5 MUSD schools will offer free breakfast and lunch
for ALL students this year!

Nutrition Education has identified five school sites for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) in the 2018-19 school year:  

French Camp, Lincoln, Manteca Day, Calla High School, and New Vision High School.

All students attending a CEP site will be eligible for free breakfast and lunch regardless of income. To qualify, ALL students must complete the CEP Survey! For these 5 schools, this replaces the existant free and reduced school lunch application.

School Meal Program—Senate Bill 138—Requires Manteca USD to apply for the Community Eligibility Provision and provide free universal breakfast and lunch service for qualifying schools. Also, CEP sites will no longer have negative student meal debt!


What do parents do for these 5 schools?

Complete the Conmmunity Eligibility Provision (CEP) Alternative Income Form here

Or, please complete the paper form provided by your school site and return to your school, so that each and every student can receive free breakfast and lunch.

All students must complete the form, even those previously approved for free or reduced lunch.

This will help every student be well prepared to learn every day.




What if I am NOT at a CEP Site?

All other schools, apply for Free or Reduced Lunch online here.

Note: If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, and you have a student at both a CEP site and a non-CEP site, parents must complete BOTH forms.

For example, if I have a child at French Camp School, and an older sister at Weston Ranch High School, I would need to complete both forms to qualify for both students to receive their free or reduced lunch benefit.
