 With the passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Act of 2010, the National School Lunch Program now includes a new universal meal program, the "Community Eligibility Provision" (CEP), which is being phased in over several years by the USDA. CEP permits eligible schools to provide meal service to all students at no charge, regardless of economic status, while reducing the burden at the household and local school levels by eliminating the need to complete the free and reduced household meal application. A school is eligible for CEP is at least 40% of its students are "directly certified". Implementation of Community Eligibility began in 2011-2012 in Illinois, Kentucky, and Michigan. In 2012-2013 school year, the USDA added District of Columbia, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia. Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Maryland were added during 2013-2014. It was available in all states in 2014-2015.


ALL Pike County Schools will be participating in CEP during the 2018-2019 school year. Parents will not have to complete free/reduced meal applications. All students will be eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge.
