Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)
The Cleveland Metropolitan School District will participate in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) meal plan for the 2017 - 2018 school year.
What is it?
CEP is a universal meal plan under the National School Lunch Program permitting eligible districts and schools to provide meal service to all students at no charge regardless of economic status.
Who can participate?
School districts must have a minimum identified student percentage of 40% based on enrollment. Identified students are those who are directly eligible for free school meals using methods other than a paper free and reduced student meal application.

Parents... what does this mean for you and your child?
There are no free or reduced meal applications that you need to complete or keep track of. Your child has access to free nutritious breakfast and lunch everyday at school!
