Paid Lunch Equity (PLE)

In an effort to assist all SFAs with the annual completion of the USDA Paid Lunch Equity requirement, the CDE Office of Grants Fiscal has extracted data from the CO Child Nutrition Hub and supplied all SFAs with data needed (via Excel spreadsheet) to complete the PLE tool.

  • The CDE PLE tool was emailed to all SFAs on May 8, 2018.
    • The CDE recommends completing the CDE PLE tool; SFAs are not required to complete both the CDE and USDA PLE tools. 
  • SFAs will email a copy of the completed CDE PLE tool to, by Friday, June 15, 2018.
