Community Eligibility Provision

All Hardin County school cafeterias are proud to operate under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  This program, first implemented during the 2014-2015 school year, is an option for select schools in Tennessee that participate in the federally-funded National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

Under CEP, all students attending school in the Hardin County school system are offered a nutritious breakfast and lunch meal each school day at no cost, regardless of a student’s eligibility status.

While a complete meal is free, parents are encouraged to send money with students for cafeteria extras, such as bottled water, extra fruit, slice of pizza, juice or ice cream.
