Colleton County School District is participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2018-2019 school year.
The program, referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision, provides an alternative to household applications for free and reduced-price meals in local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with increased levels of low-income students. All students enrolled in the school/district may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them. Families will not have to fill out meal applications.
Breakfast and lunch meals follow the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines for healthy school meals.
For more information contact School Food Service (SFS) Director Ellen Fitch at 843-782-0039 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents or guardians who do not want their child/children to participate in CEP may wish to discuss this matter with Ellen Fitch, director of student nutrition, on an informal basis.
