Last Chance to Register for CEP!


It’s the final week to opt into the Community Eligibility Program (CEP)! The deadline to apply is August 31 with some states allowing districts to opt in after that date. CEP is going nationwide this year and allows schools with high percentages of low-income children to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. It 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 to calculate federal reimbursement.

For more information on CEP, visit the USDA Website or check out your state agency for details on how to apply!
