Lunch Program

New Life Academy of Excellence will be entering into the School Nutrition Program (Free/Reduced Lunch program) this school year.  Please read below for the roll-out timeline.

 Pre-payments: Our program is self-supporting and the financial health of our program depends on parents keeping accounts up to date. We encourage parents to prepay to ensure their child’s account always has funds to cover meals. Most commonly, parents prepay by the week, month, or for the entire year.
