Community Eligibility Provision - CEP

  • CEP schools provide school breakfasts and lunches to ALL students at NO CHARGE while they are enrolled in a CEP school during the current school year. Families do NOT need to submit a free or reduced-price meal application for students who are enrolled in a CEP school during the current school year. We are happy to inform you that we were able to expand our CEP to include 20 additional schools. Below is the list of the CEP schools for the 2023-24 school year.

Program Facts

  • Portland Public Schools implemented the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) in September 2014. Schools approved for the CEP program are reevaluated and assessed each school year to determine eligibility and whether the provision can be financially supported by the department or district.
