Freer and Orange Grove Independent School District’s announced that they will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2020-2021 school year.

Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

Orange Grove will send letters to households about the eligibility benefits and any actions households need to take to apply for these benefits.Applications are also available at all campuses in Orange Grove.
