Free and Reduced Meal Application

Thanks to waivers granted by USDA, we are able to provide breakfast and lunch at no charge to all students for the 2021-2022 school year. However, if your student(s) current status is paid, we still encourage you to fill out a meal benefits application to be qualified for additional benefits such as student fee waivers, P-EBT, and reduced-price internet service. Applications can be completed online here: Alternatively, families can download the paper application and submit it to the School Nutrition Office. We encourage all families that are new or re-enrolling in Chesapeake Public Schools to fill out an application. Families do not need to complete an application if one of the following applies:

-Student(s) received a Letter of Direct Certification from School Nutrition Services
-Student(s) attend a CEP school. Find the full list of CEP schools here

The online application can be translated into multiple languages. If you need a paper copy of the application in Spanish, please email
