Child Nutrition

Welcome to Finley School District's Nutrition Services.

Finley School District participates in the National School Lunch Program/School Breakfast Program. School breakfast and lunch will be served during the school year. Each student will be issued a meal account. 

Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

The Community Eligibility Provision allows schools with high numbers of low-income children to serve free breakfast and lunch to all students without collecting school meal applications.  Finley Elementary and Finley Middle School have been approved as CEP schools starting in the 2019-2020 school year.  

River View High School will not be a CEP school in the 2019-2020 school.  The high school will continue to offer free and reduced-price meals to students based on meal applications and direct certification results.  The paid lunch price at the high school will remain the same as the 2018-2019 school year, $3.25.  A copy of the Income Eligibility Standards is located in the Child Nutrition Document section of our website. High School students from families whose income is at or below the levels shown in the standards are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.

Families of high school students will need to complete an Application form available on our website to apply for free or reduced-price meals and return it to the school. Additional copies are available at all school offices. The information provided on the application will be used to determine eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program officials.

Finley School District may disclosure student name and meal status eligibility to Federal, State, or Local agencies as authorized by the NSLA (National School Lunch Act) without the consent of parent/guardian. In addition, parents or guardians may request release of information to other programs. Please contact the District Office for Consent forms.
