All Freeport School District students have the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at school each day at no cost. The district is a participant in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), a four-year alternative program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture that is available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.
This program enables our schools to provide one reimbursable breakfast and one reimbursable lunch each day for ALL students enrolled in the Freeport School District at no charge. Students who would like to purchase an additional a la carte item or milk may continue to do so using funds on their student lunch account. A la carte pricing will range from $0.50 to $2.50 depending on the item.
Parents and district staff members are also able and encouraged to purchase meals in our cafeterias. The charge for an adult breakfast is $3.50 per meal and lunch is $5.00 per meal.
You may make Visa or Master Card payments via E-PAY to your child's lunch account at Illinois EPay.
Payments may take 2-3 days to process. Please retain your receipt (e-mail confirmation) for your records.
