• Community Eligibility Provision

    Hood River County Schools has expanded the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program to all eligible schools. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 authorized CEP to provide an alternative to household applications in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. CEP intends to improve students’ access to free school meals in eligible schools and to eliminate the burden for families who are required to complete complicated income applications on an annual basis. 

    The CEP schools listed here provide school breakfasts and lunches for ALL students at NO CHARGE while they are enrolled in a CEP school during the school year.

    May Street Elementary Chool

    Westside Elementary School

    Hood River Middle School

    Hood River Valley High School

    Mid Valley Elementary

    Wyeast Middle School

    Parkdale Elementary

    Cascade Locks Elementary 

    Students attending these schools do NOT need to fill out a meal application unless they have additional siblings attending non-CEP schools in our school district, in which case, the family would fill out one meal application with all household members included.
