Applying For Lunch Benefits
The quickest, easiest and most secure way to complete a lunch application is online. It only takes a few minutes. Just go to Family Portal to apply. Even though all students in Michigan are receiving free breakfast and lunch for the 2021/2022 school year, it is important to apply as these benefits qualify your students for other programs besides just meals.
P-EBT provides supplemental food assistance benefits to students who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the program is to make sure no child goes hungry by missing out on school meals.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Michigan Department of Education (MDE) partnered during the 2019-2020 school year to provide these critical benefits to over 900,000 students. We are excited to be partnering again for the 2020-2021 school year to provide these benefits to students to help reduce food insecurity.
- Eligible students must:
- Be enrolled in a Michigan school.
- Participate in a virtual or hybrid school schedule.
- Be eligible for free or reduced lunch.
Food Service Information
We believe that students are our NUMBER ONE PRIORITY!
Breakfast and lunch is served on a daily basis in all buildings.
We utilize a computerized point of sale system. You are able to send in breakfast and lunch payments that will then be placed on your child's account. We would like to encourage you to send in lunch deposits on a weekly or monthly basis. The computer system will then keep track of all your child's food service transactions, while keeping an up to date balance.
The Comstock Park Public School District participates in the National School Lunch/School Breakfast Program. Nutritious meals are served every school day. All meals served must meet patterns established by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
