All students enrolled in the elementary grades at Tulsa Public Schools will continue to receive breakfast and lunch free of charge during the 2017-2018 school year through the USDA's Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Parents are still encouraged to complete free/reduced application to assist with securing maximum federal and state funding for each school site and the district but receipt of free breakfast and lunch meals does not depend on returning the application.

"A healthy breakfast is a great start to the school day," said Superintendent Deborah Gist. "We know that students are better able to focus on learning when they're well fed, and we are so pleased to be able to offer nutritious meals to all of our elementary school students at no cost to families."

The Community Eligibility Provision will be effective for Tulsa elementary students for the next four years. Families with children in secondary schools will still need to complete free and reduced meal applications to determine meal benefits for secondary students for the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Program.

Free and reduced meal applications for secondary students must be submitted for each school year. Online applications are available at www.tulsaschools.org/meal_applications.
