Free meals for all Troy students

Troy City School District is participating in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) which allows all students to receive meals and milk at no charge – regardless of household income.

Parents are asked to complete the lunch application form each year. This form also helps to determine eligibility for ADDITIONAL state and federal programs that may benefit your child. Please return this form to your building principal.
