Apply for Free or Reduced Meal Benefits at Any Time During the School Year

Please be aware that you can apply for free or reduced meal benefits at any time during a school year. If approved for free meals your child would receive a free breakfast and free lunch following the USDA guidelines per day. If approved for reduced price meals, your child would receive breakfast for 30 cents and lunch for 40 cents. Our computer system will keep track of your child's status, and this is not revealed to other students. Many of our paying students maintain a balance in their account, therefore it is common for many students to go thru the service line without exchanging money. If you have made a prior application this school year and were denied, you can reapply if your employment or income situation has changed. Per USDA guidelines we would need documentation on your application of the changes. Each school maintains a supply of applications. Call 652-9222 for additional information or an application.

Approval for free or reduced meals only applies for meals obtained after the approval date. CHARGES incurred before the application is approved are not erased by the application approval, and therefore the responsibility for paying these charges rests with the parent or guardian.
