NEW CASTLE, Del. – The Colonial School District will start providing free meals to students without registration, verification or cost, according to district officials.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 began the new program, Community Eligibility Provision, July 1, authorities say. The CEP will limit applications and approval for reduced or free meals.

Carrie Downie, Castle Hills, Pleasantville, Wilmington Manor, Wilbur, Southern, New Castle, Leach, Eisenberg, George Read, McCullough and Wallin schools will participate in the new program at no cost or registration, according to the school district.

Gunning Bedford and William Penn schools will provide free meals after completing a Meal Benefit Form, officials say. Parents and students can find these forms in their mailboxes, schools, the district office or online at www.colonial.k12.de.us.

Parents can still go to myschoolbucks.com to put money into their child’s cafeteria account if needed, according to the school district.

For more information, contact the Nutrition Services office at (302) 323-2743.
