2023-2024 Meal Prices


    York One Schools is excited to announce for the 2023-2024 school year EVERY student will be able to receive breakfast

    and lunch, at school, without cost, thanks to the Federal USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program.  This federal

    program will go into effect for YSD1 beginning August 2023 and will continue for at least four years! 

    As a CEP district, all students will have breakfast and lunch available at no cost.  A la cart items, such as snacks,

    chips, ice cream, juice, individual entrée items, cookies, are not included, and students must have funds in their

    account or cash to purchase these items. 

    This program will eliminate the need for every student to fill out a “free and reduced lunch” application each year,

    removes the stigma of receiving free lunches, and will help increase participation in school meals. But, most importantly,

    it allows students to be healthy and well-fed at no cost to the student or parents.  YSD1 will participate in this program for

    the next four years, at which point the program will be evaluated at the federal level for potential continuation.

    Who benefits from the Community Eligibility Provision? Everyone!

    Students:  Access to free nutritious meals for all students, no stigma, and less time spent in cashier lines and more time to eat nutritious meals

    Parents: No household application means less paperwork and no worries about lunch accounts

    School Staff: Streamlined meal service operation and more time for students to consume their food

    1.68.      (SDE: Student Meals)  For the current fiscal year, all school districts shall conduct an updated analysis identify students in poverty according to the provisions in Proviso 1.3 of this act and increase access to free school meals for these students.  School districts shall use the criteria to directly certify pupils eligible for free and reduced-price school meals to the extent permitted under federal law. The local board of trustees of a district in which all schools are eligible to receive the free federal reimbursement rate for all reimbursable school breakfasts and lunches served, pursuant to the Community Eligibility Provision in Section 1759(a) of Title 42 of the United States Code, shall adopt a resolution indicating participation.  If a district is unable to participate because participation causes a financial hardship, the local board of trustees shall adopt a resolution stating that it is unable to participate in CEP and demonstrate the financial hardship.  The resolution shall be published on a public meeting agenda concurrently with the proposed district budget as an action item and shall be approved by a majority of the board.  School districts shall ensure that the parents or guardians of students eligible for free and reduced lunch receive the necessary applications and instructions and upon request are provided with assistance in completing the paperwork.  Schools shall not publicly identify or penalize a student who is unable to pay for a meal or accrues meal debt for any reason including, but not limited to, denying meals, serving alternative meals, discarding meals after serving them to a student, requiring chores or work in exchange for meals, prohibiting participation in extracurricular activities, denying participation in graduation, withholding diplomas, or refusing transcript requests.  Communications from the district regarding any meal debt owed must only be directed to the parent or guardian and may be sent home through the student.
