Meadow Lakes Elementary qualifies as a CEP school. August 2017
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. A key provision of The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA, Public Law 111-296; December 13, 2010), CEP allows the nation’s low income schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without the burden of collecting household applications. Instead, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students participating in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
What's this mean for our students? Every student will receive breakfast and lunch at NO COST to families. Families are NOT required to fill out lunch applications. Determination was made that qualifies Meadow Lakes Elementary a CEP school based on services that are being provided to families in our community.
Migrant Education Program participation also qualifies our school to receive Title I funding. Does your family qualify?
