Child Nutrition FAQ

General Information





Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that Evangeline Parish School District will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 2020‐2021.

What does this mean for you and your children attending the schools in the Evangeline Parish School District?

Great news for you and your students! All enrolled students of the school sites named above are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2020‐2021 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at (337) 363-0047 or
