Child Nutrition

Better - Stronger - Together

Breakfast and lunch are served each day in Newton Municipal School District (NMSD). For the School Year of 2023-2024, the NMSD Child Nutrition Department will participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) sponsored by USDA. Schools operating in CEP do not collect household applications to determine free and reduced price meal eligibility since all students receive meals at NO COST! All students within the district are eligible to
receive free breakfast and lunch meals daily.
