Community Eligibility Provision

Community Eligibility Provision

We are pleased to inform you that the Washington County School District is implementing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).

What does this mean for you and your child(ren)?

All students enrolled in Washington County Schools, regardless of income level, are eligible to receive a healthy school breakfast and school lunch at no cost each day. No further action is required of you. 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 processing those applications.

Should You have any questions please email Brenda Green [email protected]

or call 276-739-3031.
