All McCracken County Students To Eat FREE This School Year
Starting this school year, all students in McCracken County Public Schools will have access to free and healthy meals every day school is in session.
MCPS has qualified to offer free meals to all its students through the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program based on its percentage of “direct certified” students in the district. This refers to the number of homeless, migrant, foster and SNAP-eligible children in the district, who automatically qualify for free meals. 

“We are so excited to offer all of our students healthy, full-component, high-quality meals at zero cost,” said Sara Jane Hedges, food services director for MCPS. 

In order to maintain its full-CEP status for years to come, Hedges said, student participation in the program is key.

“This is a huge savings for parents, and our students are getting served high quality meals,” she said. “So come eat with us. It’s free!”

As part of the program, all parents must complete a Home Income Form (HIF) located below. This form provides critical information the district uses to secure CEP funding, as well as other federal and state funding to support students.
