Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a provision from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that allows schools with high poverty rates to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students regardless of individual household eligibility. CEP determines eligibility for school meals using information from other means-tested programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
Provision 1,2, and 3
Section 11(a)(1) of the National School Lunch Act provides three alternative provisions for participating schools to serve meals to all participating students at no charge.
Schools implementing the provision have experienced great success, allowing them to make numerous improvements to their school nutrition programs.
- Easing administrative burden. Provision status allows eligible schools to provide breakfast and lunch to all students at no charge, without collecting school meal applications or monitoring eligibility when serving meals.
- Increasing participation. All children at Provision schools receive meals at no charge, incentivizing participation.
- Improving efficiency. Provision status helps lunch lines move more quickly, allowing children more time to enjoy their meal.
- Eliminating stigma. Because all students eat at no charge, no child at a Provision school will ever be singled out among peers as receiving a subsidized meal, receive an "alternate" meal, or be denied a meal.
- Fighting child hunger. Children attending Provision schools can count on two nutritious meals every school day, stretching families' limited budgets and reducing hunger among children.
