The Seminole County School System is in compliance with the new rules established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the National School Lunch Program, and is certified to receive six -cents reimbursement for all school lunches served.
The Georgia Department of Education School Nutrition Program certified the school system’s menus, and in recognition of the hard work of the school nutrition staff in implementing the national changes, presented a plaque to commemorate its six -cents certification status.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act requires the implementation of changes for school lunches and breakfasts served in cafeterias throughout the U.S. These changes include more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables; low-fat milk dairy products; and less sodium and fat. Portion sizes have been aligned based on elementary, middle and high school grade levels. The Act also requires that an additional six -cents be reimbursed to school districts that certify each meal served meets the new requirements.
Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)
Seminole County Board of Education voted to implement the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) in School Year 2013-2014 for Free Meal Reimbursement in School Year 2014. Through CEP, Seminole County school district may offer meals at no charge to all students. This eliminates the procedure of distributing and processing meal applications.
The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 includes the implementation of CEP to insure that every student in low-income neighborhoods can participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP). To qualify, a district or school must have 40 percent or more of its students eligible for free meals based on direct certification.
By participating in CEP and eliminating the need for meal applications, Seminole County will reduce administrative and printing costs. Families also benefit from the elimination of completing and submitting meal applications.
Georgia is one of the 11 states selected to pilot this innovative program. CEP will be available to the entire country in School Year 2015.
