Child Nutrition Program

Here at IDEA, we believe eating well and exercise lead to healthy college ready students.

Welcome! Our department leads the way in making IDEA Public Schools the healthiest school district in the nation. Comprised of over 500 employees, our campus teams prepare & serve nutritious meals to our students every school day.

The programs we offer are under the guidelines and policies set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture and state agencies that monitor compliance. Please see our resources below.


The Child Nutrition Program (CNP) at IDEA Public Schools has adopted the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). This reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students continue to receive nutritious meals. Through the CEP, we are able to provide free breakfast and lunch to all children, at qualified schools, and eliminates the collection of free and reduced meal (FARM) applications. At schools that do collect FARM applications, breakfast continues to be free for all. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals. Learn if your child qualifies for a free school lunch for the 2022-2023 school year.
