Grainger County Schools is pleased to inform you that we will be implementing a program available to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).


What does this mean for you and your children?


Great news! All enrolled students in Grainger County Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no cost to your household each day of the school year. Your children will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. This program begins on January 4, 2024.  Students will still have the opportunity to purchase ala carte items, however, they are not allowed to charge for these items.  They must have cash on hand or money in their account to purchase any ala carte items..


If your child has a negative balance it must be paid in full by December 20, 2023 or have a payment plan in place and approved by the School Nutrition Coordinator by this date.  Payments can be made directly to the school cafeteria by cash or check or online at


If you have any questions about CEP or about your child’s account, please contact the School Nutrition Office at 865-828-3775 or email
