Free Meals for All Students!

Frequently Asked Questions

Students in the White Plains City School District will begin the 2023-2024 school year, on the right track with FREE nutritious breakfast AND lunch meals in school. WPCSD is approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  CEP allows districts to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students without the encumbrance of collecting and processing school meal applications for free and reduced-price meals. In addition, Community Eligibility allows families to reallocate the money previously used for the lunch program back into supporting their household.

For the 2023 – 2024 school year, all children in the White Plains City School District will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no charge regardless of household income or completion of the Household Benefit Income Eligibility form.
