CEP Provision Announcement

  • School Nutrition is pleased to announce the implantation of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) at the following Cabarrus County Schools for the 2017-2018 school year:


    • Beverly Hills Elementary
    • Royal Oaks Elementary
    • Winecoff Elementary
    • Opportunity School
    • W.M. Irvin Elementary

    What is CEP?

    In a CEP School, ALL enrolled students receive a nutritious Breakfast & Lunch at no cost, regardless of family income.


    What if my student transfers to a school that is not CEP?

    If your student receives a meal or transfers to a school that is not a part of the CEP program, you will be responsible for the cost of your child's meal.  You may aply for Free or Reduced Meal Benefits at that time if you feel your family qualifies.  The cost of breakfast is $1.15 for elementary and $1.30 for secondary.  Lunch is $2.55 for elementary and $2.65 for secondary.


    What about siblings?

    If you have children who are enrolled in a non-CEP school, you will be responsible for the cost of meals provided to the child at that non-CEP school.  However, if you feel your family may qualify for Free or Reduced meal benefits, you are encouraged to complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application on-line at lunchappliation.com, or see the school Cafeteria Manager for a paper application to apply.


    What if my child wants extras?

    CEP covers the cost of a breakfast and lunch meal each day.  For an additional entree or snack, you will be responsible to cover the cost of those items.
