Change to Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) Starting August 2022

Due to changes in socioeconomic demographics throughout the county, and federal requirements for program participation, changes are required regarding Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) implementation within our school district. As a result, unless eligible via an income-based school meal application or the Florida direct certification system, students attending the following schools will no longer receive meals free of charge during the upcoming 2022-2023 school year:

  • Mason Elementary School
  • Gamble Rogers Middle School
  • Sebastian Middle School

For the 2022-2023 school year, school meal applications will be available starting July 1, 2022. Visit the Free & Reduced Meal Prices web page for additional information or contact the Food & Nutrition Services Department.
