School Meal Information

School Lunch Information


With the start of the 2015/16 school year, all RSU #74 schools will be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program.  CEP is directed toward schools with a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and under CEPall students receive a breakfast and lunch at no charge.


All meals served will meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  If a child has a disability, as determined by a doctor, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by a doctor.  If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal.  Please note, however, that the school is not required to make a substitution for a food allergy, unless it meets the definition of disability.  Please call the school for further information.


However, to determine eligibility to receive additional benefits for child(ren) and school, you will need to complete a Household and Income Form and return it to your school. 


This form will provide information needed by the State Department of Education to determine the eligibility for State Economically Disadvantaged funds available under the Essential Programs & Services Funding Act for our students and schools. 


If you have any questions about these guidelines or about the school lunch program, please call Heidi Atwood at (207) 696-3100 or email
