Free & Reduced Meal Applications Info
This program for enrolled students is a great benefit, and we encourage you to apply at any time, especially if your home situation or income has changed.
Critical Application Information
All applications from the previous year expire on October 13th. To continue or renew your status, Food & Nutrition Services must receive a current year application. Please note that photocopied, or incomplete forms cannot be accepted and may result in a delay in free or reduced price meal benefits. Completed applications are processed within ten days of receipt at the Nutrition Service Office. Once processed, you will be notified via mail of your benefits.
Applications are Confidential
All information on your application is confidential and will only be used for the meal program, unless you request to release the information. Student computer accounts look identical to cash paying students, so no one can tell what the status of any student is. We respect your privacy.
You may apply for meal benefits at any time during the school year.
Following are some helpful tips for filling out the application to assure it can be processed quickly:
- One form per household with the exception of one application per foster child
- Additional students and/or household members may be attached on a separate piece of paper
- Providing food stamp or TANF numbers simplify the process
- The form must be signed by the parent/guardian before processing is complete
