Child Nutrition


The Salt Lake City School District recognizes that a poor diet negatively impacts students’ health, and their ability and motivation to learn. The child nutrition program provides students access to the varied and nutritious foods they need to stay healthy and energized to succeed year round.

Apply for Meal Benefits EVERY school year!

Last years application does NOT carry over!

All students who attend approved Elementary schools, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive one free breakfast and one free lunch each day they attend school.  Free and reduced meal benefit applications will not be collected at CEP school sites. The following Elementary Schools have been approved: Liberty, Bennion, Meadowlark, Riley, and Edison.

If a CEP student has siblings attending a non CEP school make sure to send an application!

If you have any questions, call our office: 801-974-8380

The Salt Lake City School District waives the federal reduced price meal rate; therefore, students who qualify for federal Free or Reduced Price Meal Benefits are eligible to receive one free student breakfast and one free student lunch each day they attend any of our schools.
