Memphis Street Academy has been approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education as a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) site. This means that all students are entitled to a free breakfast and lunch without the requirement of completing lunch applications. Students do not need to bring food to school, unless there is medical need.
In the event that a student wishes to pack a lunch, healthy packed lunches are permitted in the school building. These lunches should qualify as nutritious according to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Division of Food and Nutrition Program.
Students who bring lunches that do not follow these healthy guidelines, will be given the opportunity to eat the school lunch. School staff will contact the parent/guardian to discuss the concerns.

| · Candy|| · Glass Bottle or containers|
| · Gum|| · Containers that are difficult for your Student to open|
| · Fast Food|| · Containers that easily leak or spill|
