WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AUGUST 4, 2022) — By participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Program, Williamsport Area School District will offer free breakfast and lunch to all students during the 2022-2023 school year.

Families of students enrolled in and who attend district schools are able to benefit from the program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. However, households with children participating in the program will be asked to complete a Household Income Information Survey.

“Receiving free meals will not rely upon families returning the survey,” said Business Administrator Wanda Erb, “but it will be important to collect these survey results, as funding to support this program is based on documented need.”

Free meals will be comprised of lean proteins, healthy whole grains, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Á la carte items, add-ons and snacks will remain available for purchase.
District families can expect to receive information on the program when students return to school on Aug. 29.
