DOES SARANAC CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT PROVIDE FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH TO ALL STUDENTS?

We do not.  The USDA's Food and Nutrition Services provides a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), which allows the nation's highest poverty schools and Districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students.  A district or school is able to enroll in CEP if the percentage of identified students is above 40%.  An identified student lives in a household that receives benefits such as SNAP/Food Stamps, Medicaid, TANF Cash Assistance or FDPIR.

WHAT IS SARANAC'S PERCENTAGE OF IDENTIFIED STUDENTS?

Saranac's identified student percentage is approximately 29% for the 2017-2018 school year.  To qualify for the program, the number of identified students in the District would need to increase by about 154.
