Meal Charge Policy

All meals served are free under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.  Thurgood Marshall Academy is a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school.  The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provides free meal service for schools and school districts in low-income areas.  CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast, lunch, and snacks at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications.

The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) allows the school to participate in NSLP and SBP – operations for traditional school year where meals are free to all students during COVID closures of 10+ days.

Afterschool Snack is provided to all students free of charge through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). 

Students with medical exemption waivers can opt to pick up meals by notifying the school in advance.  Meal pick-up hours are M-F, 9am – 1pm.
