The Lansing Central School District (LCSD) has introduced a free meal initiative for all its students starting November 1, according to school officials.

This program, which will last through the end of the school year, was made possible through the district’s participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program, designed to serve free meals in low-income areas.

The CEP enables schools to provide free meals to all students without individual income assessment, aiming to improve student nutrition, academic performance, and overall health.

The district anticipates that the program will address food insecurity within the community, ensuring students have the necessary sustenance for educational success.
