Granite School District’s Child Nutrition Services has been approved to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) beginning the 2018/2019 school year. This means breakfast and lunch will be available to all children who attend one of the schools listed below at no charge.
CEP eliminates the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This lifts a major burden for both families and school administrators, and helps ensure students receive nutritious meals.
Schools that are part of the CEP include:
- Granite Park Jr. High
- Lincoln Elementary
- James Moss Elementary
- Redwood Elementary
- Roosevelt Elementary
- Woodrow Wilson Elementary
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision is a non-pricing meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications. Instead, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students categorically eligible for free meals based on their participation in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
Please note children attending schools that are not listed above will need to fill out an application to receive free or reduced priced meals. The application for free or reduced priced meals can be completed on-line at MySchoolApps.com or at your child’s school.
