Community Eligibility Provision
We are pleased to inform you that Louisiana Schnell Elementary will be continuing the Community Eligibility Provision in the 2020-21 school year. This is a provision available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs and allows schools in low-income areas to offer meals to all students at no cost.
The CEP is an alternative to the traditional meal application process associated with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. CEP alleviates the burden on families by eliminating household applications, while helping schools reduce costs associated with collecting and processing those applications.
