Student Meals Information 2022-2023

Parents and Guardians,

Nutrition Services is excited to announce that this school year Betz, Salnave, Sunset, and Snowdon elementary schools, Cheney Middle School and Westwood Middle School, and Three Springs High School qualified for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which allows school districts to provide meals to these schools at no cost. In addition, Cheney Public Schools will pay for Windsor Elementary meals for those students who do not qualify for the Free and Reduced Meal program through ESSER funds for the 2022-2023 school year. Students at Cheney High Schools and HomeWorks! who do not qualify for Free and Reduced Price Meals will pay for meals.

The State Legislature passed House Bill 1878, requiring Local Education Agencies to increase school participation in the Community Eligibility Provision. This change allowed for more of our schools to qualify for CEP than ever before. The legislature also passed House Bill 1342, which eliminated co-pays for those who qualify for reduced-cost meals. The effect of these programs means more students will qualify for free meals than before the pandemic; however, we need families to support these programs by completing either a Household Information Survey or Free and Reduced Application. Please complete the forms listed below for your children’s school(s).

Family support for these programs helps the district maintain our expanded meal program into future years; please prioritize filling out either the Household information survey or the Free and Reduced Price Meal application.
