(CEP) Community Eligibility Provision Free Meals

Perry Township Schools will be participating in the national school lunch and breakfast program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 22-23 school year. Through the CEP, all students will receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to the student. A la carte food purchases and additional meals are not included in this program and will incur a charge. When a student’s account has a negative balance, no charges will be allowed for a la carte items. 

Note: Textbook assistance is not included in the CEP. All students must pay curricular material (textbook) fees unless you have been notified in writing that your child has been approved for free curricular materials for the 2022-2023 school year. If you want to apply for textbook assistance, please fill out an application here after July 27, 2022.

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child’s eligibility for textbook assistance. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.

Household size is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The total household income is the income each household member received last month before taxes – this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
