CEP Program to Bring Free Lunch and Breakfast Beginning Jan. 3

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that Unicoi County School Nutrition will implement Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), a program available to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Programs.

What does this mean?

Great news! All students enrolled in Unicoi County Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day of the school year at NO COST to your household. Your children may participate in these meal programs without paying a fee or submitting a meal application. Our CEP implementation is a pilot program that will begin on January 3, 2024 and will continue based on student participation. 

MySchoolBucks will still be available for students to purchase a la carte items. Please update your MySchoolBucks accounts if you have automatic transactions scheduled.

If you have any questions about this letter, please contact Michael Smith at 423-743-1613. 


Judy McCurry

UC School Nutrition Administrative Assistant
