COMMUNITY ELIGIBILITY PROVISION (CEP)

Mexia ISD will continue serving free meals to children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022 - 2023 school year. Schools qualifying to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provide breakfast and lunch to all enrolled children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.
