-- Capital City Public Charter School is currently participating in the District of Columbia National School Breakfast and Lunch Program, which follows USDA meal pattern requirements, rules and regulations. The program enhances children’s learning abilities. Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems and are more attentive in class. A good school breakfast and lunch is not only essential to academic achievement;
it is also part of a good education.
