HOLLEY – The school district will make free breakfasts and lunches available to all students who want them in 2019-20.

Holley has been offering free breakfasts and lunches during part of the summer, from July 8 to Aug. 16 this year, as has in previous summers.

Holley applied for the free breakfast and lunch program throughout the school year, and was approved through the Community Eligibility Provision of the National School Breakfast/Lunch Program.

The CEP program provides the opportunity for schools in high poverty areas to provide two nutritious meals every school day, while eliminating the stigma for those students previously identified as “low income.”

Medina participated in the program this past school year for the first time and will continue next year.

“It’s wonderful,” said Robin Silvis, president of the Holley Board of Education. “We’re thrilled.”

For more information about the program, contact Sharon Zacher, Assistant Superintendent for Business, at (585) 638-6316 Ext. 2001 or szacher@holleycsd.org.
