Community Eligibility Provision- CEP
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) was established by The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 and allows children in low-income, high-poverty schools to receive free meals. Any child who attends a CEP school will receive a free reimbursable breakfast, lunch and afterschool snack every day. Students will only be able to participate in the free meal program as long as they are attending a CEP school. If a student transfers to a traditional application campus they will need to complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application and return the application to the new school cafeteria manager or the Child Nutrition Services Office.
