The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a non-pricing meal service option for schools and school districts in low-income areas. CEP allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications. Instead, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students categorically eligible for free meals based on their participation in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
In an effort to increase the number of participants to be counted in the CEP, the Office of Facilities and Operations (OFO), School Food Service Branch is requesting that schools encourage parents and families who may meet income eligibility requirements to apply for the SNAP and/or the TANF. For more information about who may be eligible for these programs, please see the links below, or call the Public Assistance Information Line, (statewide) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 855-643-1643.
We understand that this is a short window of time to try and increase the number of SNAP and TANF applications that are received by April 1, 2021. Therefore, OFO is requesting the accompanying flyer be sent to families in your school and/or posted to your school’s website. OFO will also be looking to directly reach out, via e-mail, to eligible families that are receiving a free/reduced meal, but are not identified as part of your school’s ISP.

If you should have any questions, please contact the School Food Service Branch, at (808) 784- 5500.
We ran an activity called Links of Thanks. It asked the students to send us messages of thanks and appreciations. The messages could be general to specific teachers, staff, admin. We printed the messages onto copy paper, cut them into strips & made paper chains. They'll be displayed in the cafe today.
Then we compiled the messages into a Google Slide that is shared with you below. All of the messages that are in quotation marks are from our students.
Thank you from the Student Activities Program. While everything is different and new, we appreciate your work to be there for our students everyday. We struggle too with providing activities virtually and appreciate your participation. Enjoy your long weekend with the "small" group of family &/or friends that you'll be spending the holidays with.
