Comanche ISD Will Continue Offering Free Meals to All Students

During the 2022-23 School Year

Comanche ISD would like to announce a change to its policy for serving meals to children served under
the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-23 school year. Schools
qualifying to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provide breakfast and lunch to all children
at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student
meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure
that students receive nutritious meals.
