Breakfast and Lunch Programs / Hunger Free Kids Act (2010)
Peekskill City School District has been awarded a federally funded breakfast and lunch provision for all district students Pre-K-Grade 12. Due to the large number of students attending Peekskill City School District who met previous guidelines for free or reduced meals, the district was able to apply for the Community Eligibility Option of the 2010 Hunger Free Kids Act.
Effective immediately, every child Pre-K through grade 12 attending a Peekskill City School District site will receive a free breakfast and free lunch. The only time a child will need to pay for food will be if they wish to purchase a snack item or a second meal.
This is a wonderful program for our students and their families. The subsidy runs from 2016 through June 2020. The value of the reimbursements is estimated to be approximately $400,000 per year for our families.
