Community Eligibility ProvisionIn the 2014/2015 school year, Pittsburgh Public Schools began participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) which allows all students in the district to eat for free regardless of their financial standing. CEP provides an alternative approach for offering free meals to school districts that meet specific financial requirements instead of collecting individual applications for free/reduced meals. Benefits of CEP in Pittsburgh Public Schools include:
- All students receive a free breakfast and lunch, regardless of their financial standing
- Increases in breakfast and lunch participation
- Simplifies meal counting and claiming, reducing long serving lines
- Eliminates student debt from reduced and paid meals
