Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

Meyer Elementary, Woolls Intermediate, McDowell Middle School, and Hondo High School will be participating in the CEP School Meal Program for school year 2024-2025. Students attending all campuses will receive one Free Breakfast and one Free Lunch daily, and will not be required to complete an application to receive meals free of charge. Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the HISD Child Nutrition Services is to provide all school children access to healthy, well-balanced meals to increase their ability to learn in the classroom, grow up healthy and to reach their fullest potential.

Our goal is to provide quality food on the serving line all the time, so from the first student we serve to the last, all have a positive school meal experience.


Meal Purchasing made easy
