Breakfast & Lunch Program

CAFETERIA NEWS LETTER 2015

Good news!

We are happy to announce that beginning the 2015-2016 school year, Catholic Academy of West Buffalo will be implementing a new provision available to schools participating in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).

What does this mean for you and your children?

All full-day enrolled students at CAWB, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive a healthy school breakfast and lunch at no charge, each day. No further action is required. There is no fee or application.

The CEP is a new alternative to the traditional meal application process associated with the USDA National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. CEP alleviates the burden on families by eliminating household applications, while helping schools reduce costs associated with collecting and processing those applications.

For more information about CEP, please visit USDA.gov/school-meals/communityeligibility-provision.

The cafeteria will continue to offer a la carte pricing for additional entrées, sides, and ice cream.

The prices are below:

Second entrée       $1.00                               Side of vegetable or fruit               $0.50                   Perry’s Ice Cream   $1.00

Side of French Fries $0.75                             Dinner roll, bread & butter            $0.50               Extra Milk               $0.50

If you have any questions, please call our Food Service Manager, Mrs. Elizabeth Guzman, at (716)885-6111.
