Community Eligibility Provision

The Leesville R-IX School District is participating in a Free Breakfast and Lunch Program for the current school year 2017-2018. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision. All students enrolled at this school may participate in the breakfast/lunch program at no charge. Household applications for free and reduced price meals will not be collected. 

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast/lunch to all children at no charge, we can create a better learning environment for our students. 

The school breakfast and lunch that we serve follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Free Breakfast and Lunch Program cannot succeed without your support. Please encourage your children to participate in the school meal programs.

All meals will be served to all students at no charge.
