If you have another child or other children not attending a CEP school and would like to apply for meal benefits you may complete a Free & Reduced Meal application. Follow the instructions below. All students will still need to purchase snacks or extra food items.
 
 
Children in your household not attending a CEP school:
If you have a child or children in your household attending a school other than one of the CEP schools listed above and would like to apply for meal benefits please complete a Free & Reduced Meal application for them. An application must be submitted and received by the School Nutrition office in order for meal benefits to be approved. Your child or children attending a CEP school must still be listed as a family member in Part I on this application with their school, grade and income or no income listed. They have to be included as part of your household when submitting an application for children not attending one of the schools above.
