Students To Receive Free Meals During 2023-2024 School Year

All students in Lexington County School District Three will continue to receive free breakfasts and lunches during the 2023-2024 school year as part of the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program.

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), a key allocation of The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, eliminates the requirement for parents/guardians to fill out Free and Reduced Meal applications for the upcoming school year. CEP also promotes equity across the district by eliminating out-of-pocket school meal costs for all families. In addition, the CEP program will make it easier for Lexington Three’s dedicated child nutrition staff members to streamline meal service operations and expand reach so that all students are nourished and ready to learn and grow.
