Community Eligibility Program

The Community Eligibility Provision is a new opportunity that allows the food service program to offer breakfast and lunch at no charge to all students for a four-year period. Starting July 1, 2014, a school or group of schools with 40% or more of their students directly certified for free meals have the opportunity to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
