Jessamine County Schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

Jessamine Co. Schools announces an amendment to its policy for serving meals to students under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the 2018-19 school year. All students will be served both lunch & breakfast at no charge at the following sites:

Jessamine Early Learning Village (JELV)

Brookside Elementary

Nicholasville Elementary

Red Oak Elementary

Rosenwald Dunbar Elementary

Warner Elementary

Wilmore Elementary

The Providence School (TPS)

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a provision from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that allows schools and local educational agencies (LEAs) with high poverty rates to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. CEP eliminates the burden of collecting household applications to determine eligibility for school meals, relying instead on information from other means-tested programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
