Community Eligibility Provision

Bluford Unit Schools is pleased to announce that the school district has applied for and has been approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision which means that ALL students will receive breakfast and lunch for FREE every day.  

The school district will need to increase participation rates by 10% at the elementary school and approximately 25% at the high school in order to sustain the program.  However, we feel that this is achievable.  It is our hope that with breakfast and lunch being free, more students will eat everyday.

For the upcoming school year, no families will need to complete a lunch application and every student will receive free breakfast and lunch.

Please make note though that any negative lunch balances which have previously been incurred are still due.  This program becomes effective at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.  So, if you currently have a negative lunch balance, please make payment as soon as it is convenient.
