Montessori Island School offers healthy meals to all enrolled children as part of our participation in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The CACFP provides reimbursements to our school for healthy meals served to children enrolled in child care based on families income.
Each year, parents will be asked to help us comply with the requirements of the CACFP by completing a Meal Benefit Income Eligibility Form which will also determine if your child or children qualifies for free or reduced price meals.
