Wyoming Department of Education has requested an extension of the June 30 th deadline for the intent to elect Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) due to the lowered Identified Student Percentage (ISP). ISP has been lowered to 25% and was made effective after the June 30 th election deadline. The extension will be for the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. The extension will allow school districts to elect CEP mid-year.

About the Program

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) are designed to promote the health and well-being of children by providing nutritious meals to children in public and private schools and residential child care institutions (RCCIs).

The USDA income eligibility guidelines for school meals are intended to direct benefits to those children most in need. These guidelines are based on the federal income poverty guidelines and are revised annually. The eligibility criteria is 130% of the income poverty guidelines for free and 185% for reduced-price meals.

Any school food authority (SFA) may contract with a Food Service Management Company (FSMC) to manage its food service operation. For more information about FSMCs please contact Susan Benning at or at 307-777-6280.

Information, guidance, and regulations on all Child Nutrition Programs can be found on the USDA Food and Nutrition Service Website.
