Why should I apply?

 

The free/reduced price meals program helps to ensure that students have the nutrition they need to tackle academic and social-emotional learning with confidence throughout the day. This program provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. Submit one application now, and students in your family may qualify for discounted or free meals and school fees for the entire school year.

 

Registering for free/reduced meal prices has big benefits. The free/reduced price meal form not only discounts meal prices. Applicants also may qualify for reduced athletic fees, ASB card fees, jazz band fees, competition fees, dance admissions, extracurricular club dues, field trips, uniforms, and more. Applications to the free/reduced price meal program also qualify school districts to receive greater federal funding for special programs.

 

Do I qualify?

 

Families should consult the table below to determine eligibility based on household income. Fill out the application if your total household income is the same or less than the amount shown on the chart, if you are applying for foster children who are under the legal care of a foster care agency or court, or if you receive support from certain programs (Basic Food, Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.)

 

If you are unsure of your eligibility, fill out the application. We will determine your eligibility for you. The information you provide in the application will be used to determine your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals.
