Wood County Board of Education announces that all Wood County Schools will be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2023-24 school year.
Students in Wood County will have the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at school at no cost through a program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The CEP was enacted as a result of the Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act and provides universal meal service to children in high-poverty areas.
The CEP serves as an alternative to collecting, approving, and verifying household eligibility applications for free- and reduced- price eligible students in high-poverty Local Education Agencies (LEAs). If at least 40 percent of a school’s students are directly certified for free meal benefits, the entire school qualifies for the option.
All students enrolled in the Wood County School District may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them each day of the 2023-24 school year. Meal applications are not required for students attending schools in the Wood County School District.
