Jo Kelly Nutrition Service
Fort Worth Independent School District is dedicated to student success. To support that mission, Child Nutrition Services' goal is to improve the health and well-being of children by preparing and serving attractive, nutritious meals at a reasonable price. The Child Nutrition Services' mission is to meet or exceed dietary guidelines, provide appropraite, outstanding menu choices and promote nutrition education among our customers - the students.
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) was established by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 and allows children in low-income, high-poverty schools to receive free meals. Any child who attends a CEP school will receive a free reimbursable breakfast, lunch and afterschool snack every day. Students will only be able to participate in the free meal program as long as they are attending a CEP school. If a student transfers to a traditional application campus they will need to complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application and return the application to the new school cafeteria manager or the Child Nutrition Services Office.
