• Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Schools

    The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a non-pricing meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications.  

    What this means is that all students at the schools listed below will receive FREE breakfast and lunch and no meal benefit application is needed.
