CEC Food Services

We are excited to serve your students in the 2022-23 school year!

The CEC Food Services department is committed to providing delicious and balanced meals through our Farm-to-School meal program. We believe that by providing nutritious and appetizing meals for students is how we support their academic success. CEC Food Services strives to integrate and involve students into every step of our program – from planting seeds in the garden to serving the harvested produce in the cafeteria. We hope to support your students’ health and wellbeing both in and out of the classroom. We are grateful to serve you!

Our Fort Collins High School proudly serves McMurry Middle School and CEC Windsor 6-12. Our Inverness High School proudly serves Parker High School and Castle Rock High School. Our Aurora High School proudly serves students on their campus. Meals at Colorado Springs 6-12 are currently provided through Colorado Springs School District 11. Planning and construction for the opening of a new kitchen on the Colorado Springs 6-12 campus is in-progress.

P-EBT Federal Program

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program is a federal program created to provide additional funds for families to buy food when schools were closed or on a remote or hybrid learning model due to COVID-19. The P-EBT benefits will be electronically placed on the EBT card and can be used to purchase eligible food items at local and online retail stores. Please complete the Free and Reduced Lunch application in TITAN to become eligible.

School Meal Charging Process and Procedure

The CEC Food Services department is self-sufficient and relies on payments, in addition to federal reimbursements, to maintain the level of service provided and financial stability of the program. It is the expectation that families will work with us to keep accounts in good standing and be accountable for meal charges accrued by their child(ren). We want mealtime to be a positive experience for all students and will serve every child a well-balanced meal when they enter the line and request one. Because hunger is an impediment to learning, no child will be denied a school meal unless directed by the child’s parent/guardian. Please click on the link below to learn more.
