Community Eligibility Provision

Community Eligibility Provision

Many of our schools are participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. 

CCSD CEP list for SY 20-21
What does this mean for you and your child(ren)?

All enrolled students in our school district, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive a healthy school breakfast and school lunch at no charge each day. Please do not fill out a free and reduced application for your CEP students. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

The CEP is a new alternative to the traditional meal application process associated with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. CEP alleviates the burden on families by eliminating household applications, while helping schools reduce costs associated with collecting and procesing those applications.
