Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program allows schools and local educational agencies (LEAs) located in low-income areas to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students.

CEP means that all students can eat free when on campus or if you utilize the drive-thru meal service while students are remote learning, which is offered every Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

At the beginning of each school year, an email will be sent to parents/guardians with a link to complete the Educational Benefits Form (income survey).  This survey takes the place of the National School Lunch Program Free and Reduced Lunch application since both of our campuses have been accepted into the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  Only complete one application per household, even if you have children at both campuses.

We appreciate your time in completing the income survey.  The results of the survey assist Cedars International Academy in obtaining additional funding for your student's education.
