Lunch Form/Family Income Inquiry Form

Dear Parents & Guardians,
 
Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a Universal School Meals plan (USM) under the National School Lunch Plan that permits eligible districts and schools in New York City and elsewhere in the country, to provide meal service to all students at no charge, regardless of economic status.
 
Although lunch is free for NYC students, to assure the appropriate allocation of federal Title 1 dollars to WJPS, and to determine the eligibility of your child for certain rights and services under the No Child Left Behind Act, we still need you to complete a lunch form. 
 
The Department of Education has changed the name of the form to the Family Income Inquiry Form.
 
It may have a new name, but the information is the same as you have provided all the years your child has been in school. The most efficient and secure way to fill out the form is online by clicking HERE.
 
Paper forms take longer to process, and we are not assured of getting enough copies for all students. The paper form must be filled out by you, sent back to school with your child, collected by a staff member, put through a scanner and downloaded to the Department of Education. The DOE may take several weeks to then process the form.
 
If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Helen Reed by email at helen.reed@wjps.org.
