Free Meal Program Expands for 2019-20

At a meeting of the El Dorado School Board on Monday, July 15, directors unanimously voted to expand the free meal program to include students at Barton Junior High this coming school year.

Through the Community Eligibility Program (CEP), El Dorado Schools will be able to expand the free breakfast and lunch program that was offered last year to K-6th grade students to now include 7th and 8th grades as well. That means EVERY student in K-8th grade in our schools will receive FREE breakfast and lunch each day that school is in session next year. Students will receive the same nutritious, variety of foods that they have been getting, now free of charge, with no application process necessary.
