Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) - Base Year


The Cross Roads ISD announced today a change to its policy for serving meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2023-2024 school year. Schools qualifying to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provide breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families, school administrators, and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
