Child Nutrition Program Reports
Federally-funded programs report data such as eligibility information, participation, and administrative review findings. Use this page for up to date information in Child Nutrition Programs.
- Area Eligibility Data/Eligibility for Free and Reduced-Price Meals
Child Nutrition Services collects free and reduced-price meals eligibility data from public school districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program each year in October. The data collected in October is published in February each year.
This data reflects students enrolled in a participating school with access to school meals.
Data is aggregated to represent a school and district free and reduced-price percentages. The data can be filtered by county.
Child Nutrition Services uses this data to determine area eligibility for At-Risk Programs, Summer Programs, After School Snack Programs, the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, CACFP Family Day Care Home Providers, as well as for Child Nutrition Services grants.

Report card data captures income data for public school districts that do not participate in the National School Lunch Program.
The report card data also captures student demographic data which is used by CNS
