Free Meals for all Students/CEP

Free Meals for all Students
Community Eligibility Provision Notification

Dear Parent or Guardian:
We are pleased to inform you that the Northeast School Corporation will be implementing the Community Eligibility
Provision (CEP) for meals served on the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-2023
school year.
All students enrolled at all NESC schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge
each day of the 2022-2023 school year. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to
pay a fee or submit an application.
CEP eligibility does not qualify your family for textbook assistance unless you have been notified that you are directly
certified under SNAP,TANF, MEDICAID or FOSTER benefits. If you believe that you would qualify for textbook assistance
due to income, NESC has a Textbook Assistance application online under the “Harmony 3 Family Access Login” or a paper
copy is available at all schools. If you qualify, this will establish free or reduced eligibility for textbook assistance and also will
help the Northeast School Corporation establish an accurate free/reduced rate that is used for Title I, grants and other
programs.
If we can be of any further assistance or you have any questions, please contact me at 812-397-5390 or
[email protected]
Sincerely,
Nancy Woodard
Food Service Director, F/R Applications Manager
