  • Helping Families and Students One Meal At A Time

    Starting this school year, the school district will be providing breakfast and lunch to students in 16 of the district's 24 schools at no cost. The Food & Nutrition Dept. led the effort to bring this federal program, called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), to Hernando Schools. The intent of this program is to ensure students have access to nutritious food without the requirement to apply for free or reduced meals.

    “We know we have students who go without healthy food during the day. Students are not able to thrive academically if they are hungry,” Lori Drenth, Director of the Food and Nutrition Dept. said. “Removing as many barriers as possible helps to ensure students have access to nutritious food and that is very satisfying.”

    Students attending a CEP school will bring home a letter that will explain the new program. The following schools are participating in CEP this year: Brooksville Elementary, Deltona Elementary, Eastside Elementary, Floyd Elementary, Moton Elementary, Pine Grove Elementary, Spring Hill Elementary, Suncoast Elementary, Westside Elementary, Explorer K8, Winding Waters K8, D.S. Parrott Middle, Fox Chapel Middle, Powell Middle, West Hernando Middle, Endeavor/Discovery.

    School not participating in CEP this year will continue to provide meals as in the past.
