All Metro Nashville Public Schools students will receive no-cost meals during the 2023-2024 school year thanks to the support of the MNPS Board of Education and the federal Community Eligibility Provision program.
And, while student meals are no cost, families who may quality for free and reduced meals, and whose students are not attending a CEP school are encouraged to submit a Meal Benefits Application because qualification helps connect families to things such as:
- discounts for fees associated with college applications
- scholarships and fee discounts for SAT, ACT and AP tests
- greater federal reimbursement to provide for program improvement
