Community Eligibility Provision Information

Child Nutrition Services is excited to welcome in the 2021-2022 school year. Cumberland County Child Nutrition Services participates in the federally assisted National School Lunch program (NSLP) and National School Breakfast Program (NSBP). We are committed to providing nutritionally balanced, low-cost or no-cost meals to students. Please visit http://cn.ccs.k12.nc.us/ to learn more about our program.

 

Here are some helpful tips about Child Nutrition Services:

  • School meals contain fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nonfat or low-fat milk and less sodium and fat.
  • At breakfast, students may select: milk, fruit, 100% fruit juice and a breakfast entrée.
  • At lunch, students may select: milk, entrée and a variety of fruits and vegetables.

 

Currently this school is a CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) School. This provision enables each student enrolled to receive a breakfast and lunch at no charge on days when school is in session. Students enrolled are not required to submit a lunch application to receive meals at no charge.

 

Options to view menus:

  • Visit http://cn.ccs.k12.nc.us/ and click on the “monthly menus” tab.
  • Also you can click on the “email menu sign-up” tab to receive menus by email.
  • Download the “CCS” app or the “Web Menu” app on your mobile device available on Apple and Androids.

 

A la carte items that meet Smart Snack guidelines may be purchased in the cafeteria. The a la carte selection may include 100% fruit juice, bottled water, crackers, frozen treats, etc. Students may pay in advance in the cafeteria for a la carte items. An online service is also available for prepayment at www.k12paymentcenter.com, once the student has a PowerSchool number assigned to them.

 

If your student has food allergies or other dietary restrictions, a Special Diet Order Form needs to be completed, signed by your child’s physician and returned to the Cafeteria Manager and School Office/Nurse. Forms can be obtained in the school cafeteria and on the Child Nutrition website.
