All CPS Students Can Eat Breakfast for Free


Cincinnati Public Schools is proud to offer breakfast at no charge to all students in the district. Through a recent grant award from the American Association of School Administrators, all secondary and K-12 schools now have reimbursable meal vending machines. Students can receive a complete breakfast by simply entering their assigned PIN number and birth date in the vending machines.

In future months, complete lunches and after-school a-la-carte items will be added. Students must have PayPAMS accounts to order through the vending machines.

Secondary and K-12 schools will be competing for cash prizes when they increase the number of students eating breakfast each day. The top five schools with the highest increases will receive cash prizes ranging from $500-$3000.
