All students are provided with breakfast and lunch free of charge regardless of income. If a student chooses to bring a lunch to school, it should be a complete and balanced lunch that aligns with our Wellness Policy. The school district encourages parents to pack healthy lunches and snacks and refrain from including beverages and foods without nutritional value. The main reason for this policy:
- children are able to concentrate and learn better when they have foods with nutritional value in the bodies. Additionally, any food that is brought from home can only be consumed by that student and not shared with others because of the risk of food allergies.
- NECP participates in the federal lunch program which prevents us from providing food without nutritional value.
Northeast College Prep works to accommodate food allergies with meals and snacks that are provided by the school. Students often have access to seconds on a “share table” if they are still hungry and want more food. Additionally, Northeast College Prep partners with Every Meal to provide free meals to students on the weekends. This program is open to anyone who wants it, regardless of income level. If you would like to donate to support Northeast College Prep’s food programs, please contact the main office.
Lunch and Breakfast menus are sent monthly via the ReachWell app.
