2023-24 School Year
All East Salem and GW Carver Elementary students will receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2023-24 

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a provision from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that allows school and local educational agencies (LEAs) with high poverty rates to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students. CEP eliminates the burden of collecting household applications to determine eligibility for school meals, relying instead on information from other means-tested programs such as the Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. East Salem Elementary and GW Carver Elementary participate in the Community Eligibility Provision.

Households with low or no incomes across the country could still get thousands of dollars in federal money with the Child Tax Credit - even if they have never filed taxes before.  It is estimated that at least 53,000 children in Virginia could miss out on at least $3,000 each if their parent/guardian has not yet filed.  Now more than ever, it is important to get money to the families who need it. 

People need to file before November 15 to easily get this money this year.  

People who are most likely to miss out include individuals with low or no income, immigrant families and individuals experiencing homelessness.

Families can be directed to to sign up
