Hear from the authors of a new study published in the Journal of Hunger & Environmental Nutrition that finds significant benefits for students attending schools that participate in the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), a program which allows schools in high-poverty areas to offer school meals at no cost to all students. CEP streamlines meal service and reduces administrative costs for schools while also eliminating stigma and school meal debt for students and families.
