CCSD Participating in Community Eligibility Provision

CCSD Participating in Community Eligibility Provision

Colleton County School District is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2020-2021 school year.

Section 104(a) of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 amended section 11(a)(1) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act to provide an alternative to household applications for free and reduced-price meals in local educational agencies and schools with increased levels of low-income students. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision. All students enrolled in the school/district may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them. Families will not have to fill out meal applications.
