Community Eligibility Provision

The Community Eligibility Provision program will be in place for the 2018-2019 school year for the following 7 schools:

  • Central Elementary

  • Holmes Middle 

  • Leaksville-Spray Elementary

  • Moss St. Partnership School Elementary

  • Reidsville Middle

  • South End Elementary

  • SCORE Center

  • Reidsville High School

 

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provides an alternative approach for offering school meals to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools in low income areas, instead of collecting individual applications for free and reduced price meals.

The CEP allows schools that predominantly serve low-income children to offer no cost, nutritious school meals to all students through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The CEP uses information from other programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Temporary Assistance Program for Needy Families (TANF) instead of traditional paper applications.
