More info: Curbside Meals 

Details of the program:

• The entire week of meals (breakfast and lunch) can be picked up every Monday starting 30 minutes after dismissal for an hour and a half. (Schedule is subject to change based on participation)
**HCES pickup time is 3:30-5pm in the bus loop**
• Students picking up meals must provide a student ID, and if parents are coming through the lines, they must provide their student’s name and ID number.
• For ease and efficiency in the pick-up line, parents are encouraged to have the student name and ID number written on paper in large font.

When face-to-face instruction begins August 21, schools will make decisions about the process for serving breakfast and/or lunch to students in the school building. Curbside meals will continue for students utilizing [email protected]

The OCPS school meals program is offered through the USDA Child Nutrition Program under the Florida Department of Agriculture. Schools in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP), which per USDA regulations allows schools with high numbers of families in poverty who are already qualified to receive federal aid to automatically offer school meals to all students at no charge. Curbside Meals are included in this direct certification and at CEP schools there will be no charge for these meals and there is no free or reduced meal application needed at these schools.
***HCES is NOT a CEP school.

At HCES, families will be charged the regular school meal price (which ranges from $1.35 to $2.75), unless parents apply and are approved for free or reduced priced meals.
A new lunch application must be completed each year for free and reduced lunch prices.  Parents are encouraged to complete an application if their income has changed. The deadline for new applications, and the expiration of last year’s benefits is September 23. Please visit www.myschoolapps.com to complete your application.
