No Charge K-8 Meal ProgramDear Parent or Guardian

We are pleased to inform you that All K through 8th Schools will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the current school year. 
 
What does this mean for you and your children attending the schools identified above? 
 
Great news for you and your students! All enrolled  students of Gale, King, Nielson, Silas Willard, Steele Elementary Schools and Churchill and Lombard Middle Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of this school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application. 
 
Galesburg High School is not part of this program and will continue as in the past. 
 
If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at Food Service Office, Lincoln Education Center, 309-973-2060. 
 
Sincerely, 
Galesburg CUSD #205
