Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)

The Port Aransas Independent School District operates the Community Eligibility Program under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Schools qualifying to operate the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provide breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals. Please be advised that this is a limited opportunity granted under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

  • In order for the meal to qualify for free at breakfast or lunch it must include specific choices including at least one fruit or vegetable at both meals.
  • PAISD will continue to sell a la carte items (Chips, Drinks, Extra Entrees and Snacks). Students may pay for these items with cash or with their current lunch account. Titan Online Payments will continue to be utilized to add money to student accounts. Please note that milk is sold at the a la carte price when a student does not take a school meal.
  • The school district will not be required to collect applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals due to this provision. (When the provision expires, the district will once again collect and process these standard applications.)
  • When the provision is no longer available and student meal charges resume across the district, the PAISD Child Nutrition Department will notify parent/guardians.
  • Free meals are for students only. Staff and visitors will continue to pay the designated price.
