LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The Lee County School District announced that all Lee County Schools breakfast and lunch would be free of charge for the 2019-2020 school year.
The school lunch will be free thanks to the Food and Nutrition Services Department Community Eligibility Program.
The School District also said four specialized centers, Buckingham Exceptional Center, L.A.M.P., Royal Palm Exceptional School and Success Academy are also included in the CEP breakfast and lunch program.
Parents do not need to apply, and "Free and Reduced" meal applications will not need to be completed or processed for this benefit.
We realize if a student is hungry, their ability to learn is compromised, providing this benefit will help our students excel."
