Beginning December 1, 2023, all students enrolled in the Ballston Spa Central School District will be able to receive ONE FREE breakfast meal and ONE FREE lunch meal daily.

The no-cost meals are the result of the USDA’s expanded Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). CEP rules dictate that free breakfast and lunch offerings must be complete meals which consist of protein, fruits, vegetables, milk, and grain. 

Students will need to take at least three food components (one of the components must be 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable) for their free lunch meal. For breakfast, the requirement is three items (one of which must be a fruit or vegetable) to receive a free meal.

No action is required for Ballston Spa families/students to be eligible. If you have any further questions, please contact Food Services Manager Bob Wood at 518-884-7290 x3328
