Dear Harrisburg School District Parents and Guardians:
We are pleased to inform you that the Harrisburg School District will continue to participate in a provision known as the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2021-2022 school year. This program is available to schools and school districts that participate in National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. All students enrolled in the Harrisburg School District are eligible to receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch each school day at no charge to your household. No further action is required of you to participate in this free program. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without paying a fee or submitting an application. For questions or additional information, please contact Harrisburg School District’s Food Service Department at (717) 703-4183 or the Office of the Superintendent at (717) 703-4024. To learn more about the CEP program, click here to visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture website.
