Community Eligibility Provision 

In the 2016/2017 school year, The Neighborhood Academy began participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) which allows all students enrolled in our school to eat for free regardless of their financial standing. CEP provides an alternative approach for offering free meals to school districts that meet specific financial requirements instead of collecting individual applications for free/reduced meals. Benefits of CEP include: 

  • All students receive a free breakfast and lunch, regardless of their financial standing 
  • Increases in breakfast and lunch participation
  • Simplifies meal counting and claiming, reducing long serving lines
  • Eliminates student debt from reduced and paid meals

In accordance with federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.

Program information may be made available in languages other than English. Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication to obtain program information (e.g., Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language), should contact the responsible state or local agency that administers the program or USDA’s TARGET Center at (202) 720-2600 (voice and TTY) or contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339.

To file a program discrimination complaint, a Complainant should complete a Form AD-3027, USDA Program Discrimination Complaint Form which can be obtained online at:, from any USDA office, by calling (866) 632-9992, or by writing a letter addressed to USDA. The letter must contain the complainant’s name, address, telephone number, and a written description of the alleged discriminatory action in sufficient detail to inform the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights (ASCR) about the nature and date of an alleged civil rights violation.
