In one state where we have branch offices, some school are participating in The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program. My limited understanding of the program is that 100% of the students receive breakfast and lunch at no cost. No household application is required. So my question is how do you determine the % of students that are truly eligible for F and R meals if there are no applications and no income requirement?
CEP schools are in high poverty areas, where it is assumed most of the students would qualify for aid, so they just give the free lunch to all the students. If the school qualifies as CEP, it should qualify for CRA credit as >50% LMI.
