Community Eligibility Plan (CEP)
The Community Eligibility Plan (CEP) is a program under the Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Students in qualifying schools will receive breakfast and lunch during the school year at no charge to their families. Families whose students attend these schools will not need to complete an application for the Free and Reduced Lunch program, however they will want to complete a simple, one-page Household Economic Survey form to see if their student can be considered for a fee waiver. For any questions in determining the household income information, please use the Determination of Income Worksheet.
Seventeen schools will be covered under the CEP program beginning in August 2014. All students at these schools will receive free breakfast and lunch. For a list of current CEP schools please view the free and reduced meal information on the Food and Nutrition Services section of our website. If your student is not attending one of the schools covered under CEP, they can still be considered for free or reduced meals by completing the online Free and Reduced Lunch Program Application found on the Food and Nutrition Services page.
The CEP plan will make it easier for K-12 students whose families have high economic need to have access at no charge to nutritious meals offering fruits, vegetables, milk, whole grains, and protein. For more information, please check out following Frequently Asked Questions.
