Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1759a(a)(1))(the law) to provide an alternative to household applications for free and reduced-price meals in local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with increased levels of low-income students. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision.
All students enrolled in the school may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge to them. Families will not have to fill out meal applications.
