Cincinnatus Central School District qualifies for CEP, which is a federal provision that allows some schools to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students.
CEP Benefits Students and Schools:
• Reduces the administrative burden— schools no longer collect fees or verify school meal applications.
• Eliminates the stigma—ending the perception that school breakfast and lunch are just for “poor kids.”
• Boosts participation—allowing more kids to experience the educational and health benefits linked to eating school meals
• Eliminates unpaid school meal debt— schools no longer have to foot the bill for unpaid meal fees or try to collect them from families.
