Apply for Free and Reduced Meals

It's More than a Meal. One form equals many benefits. Includes photo of hot meal on plate.

Did you know that free and reduced lunch applications provide more benefits than just school meals?

  • Classroom Resources: increased funding for learning resources for the classroom.
  • Exam Fees: discounted fees on ACT, SAT, and AP exams.
  • College Application Fees: discounted fees on college applications with most schools.
  • Scholarship Opportunities: increased opportunities for college scholarships.


The federal waivers which have allowed all children to eat free since March 2020 will no longer be in effect for the 2022-2023 school year.

Paid meals will resume August 1 if not application is on file.

School meal service will resume through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, operating as it did prior to the outbreak of COVID-19. For students to receive free or reduced prices on school meals, they will need to have an approved application on file with the BTCS Department of School Nutrition.

Applications will be provided to students at the beginning of the school year. They are also available at ...

  • BTCS Administration Building (615 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.) after July 1, 2022
  • At each school upon reopening.
  • Apply ONLINE Now!
