NarrativeDuring the school year, Polk County operates cafeterias at 103 sites and also satellites to over 25 other programs. In the summer, it operates at about 80 sites. The district, centered around Lakeland in the middle of the state, qualified about half its sites in the Community Eligibility Option pilot program for the 2013-14 school year due to their high ratio of students from low-income families.
