OCPS meal programs for 2019-20
Posted on 08/09/2019

OCPS News Release logo

The OCPS school meals program is offered through the USDA Child Nutrition Program under the Florida Department of Agriculture. All parents may apply for free or reduced priced meals through the OCPS website under the Food and Nutrition Department. Payment for meals may be made on-line through the School Pay application found at
www.schoolpay.com. USDA and OCPS have changed how students and parents are informed regarding payment for meals. At school meal times, the cashier may not ask students about payment for meals. Instead, when a student does not have funds in their account, they will receive the same meal offerings as other students. When a student’s account is negative, the school food service manager will send a letter or call parents regarding the negative balance. The supper meals offered in participating schools are served at no charge. The OCPS Board Policy on Free and Reduced Price Meal Eligibility is found in the school board documents at https: https://www.ocps.net/departments/food_and_nutrition_services/breakfast_and_lunch_prices/free_and_reduced_application_info

 

Orange County Public Schools has identified efficiencies that allow students from families in poverty who are already qualified to receive federal aid to automatically be qualified to receive school meals at no charge. To reduce the duplication of processing eligibility applications, the Food and Nutrition Services program uses the existing database from the Florida Department of Health to identify families already qualified for federal programs. USDA regulations allow schools with a high number of students directly certified to qualify for the Community Eligibility Program (CEP). The decrease in paperwork for both parents, schools, and the food service program allows these resources to move to teaching and providing higher quality meals. The schools listed below will participate in the CEP program. All students will eat meals at no charge and do not need an application in these schools.
