2023-24 Community Eligible Schools
The following schools are participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program for the 2023-24 School Year. The CEP program is part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) which allows schools with a high percentage of low income families access to free healthy breakfasts and lunches at no charge and no meal application required. All enrolled students at the schools listed are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no cost every day of the 2023-24 school year. This program includes one full breakfast and one full lunch and does not cover a la carte items such as milk purchased alone to be served with a packed lunch.
Who should and should not file a meal application?
- Families that have a mix of students attending CEP and Non-CEP schools participating in the National School Lunch Program should fill out an application for meal benefits if there is a financial need.
- For families that have students that ALL attend CEP schools, please do not file a meal application.
- CEP students that move to a Non-CEP school should file a meal application within 30 days of moving to their new school. Questions about this may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
