    PLEASE NOTE:  Lunch is not automatically ordered for a student.  If an Elementary student is tardy and was not in the classroom when the teachers marked students for lunches, their lunch must be ordered with the Elementary Front Office by 8:00 am for the student to have a lunch for that day.

    PBA Participates in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

    What is the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)?

    The CEP was authorized by Congress as a part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.  The provision allows Palm Bay Academy to provide breakfast and lunch to ALL enrolled students FREE of charge.  It eliminates the burden of collecting household applications to determine eligibility for school meal programs.


    Who Benefits?         



    All enrolled students have access to free nutritious meals, both breakfast and lunch.
