Great news for you and your children!  All students at Putnam Elementary and Putnam Middle School can get a free healthy breakfast and lunch at school during the school year.

What do you need to do?

  • You do not need to do anything.
  • You do not have to pay any money or fill out any forms.
  • You do not need to send your child to school early for breakfast.  Breakfast will be part of the school day.

Our school is getting FREE meals for all students as part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program through a choice for schools called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).


High School Students:
