Child Nutrition Booklet

CNS Update: CNS Requesting Review Cycle Waiver

Child Nutrition Services collects free and reduced-price meals eligibility data from public school districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program each year in October. The data collected in October is published in February each year.
This data reflects students enrolled in a participating school with access to school meals. 

Data is aggregated to represent a school and district free and reduced-price percentages. The data can be filtered by county. 

Child Nutrition Services uses this data to determine area eligibility for At-Risk Programs, Summer Programs, After School Snack Programs, the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, CACFP Family Day Care Home Providers, as well as for Child Nutrition Services grants.

Looking for Other Data?

The Washington School Report Card contains additional school and district income information in the diversity tab of the report card.  Choose the link for Enrollment by Student Program and Characteristic. The data represents enrollment on the first business day in October.

How does report card data differ from Child Nutrition Services data?

  • Report card data captures all students enrolled in the school district, including students that don’t have access to school meals like students in alternative learning experiences such as Running Start. 
  • Report card data captures income data for public school districts that do not participate in the National School Lunch Program.
  • The report card data also captures student demographic data which is used by CNS 

 

Looking for Free and Reduced-Price Meals Data?

You can find district and school-level data under the Area Eligibility Report dropdown (above). Please select the applicable year to get free and reduced-price percentages for that year.

Note: This data is representative of students who have access to school meals.

Looking for Community Data?

For data representative of all students in a school or district, please visit the Washington State Report Card webpage.
