Apply Now for Free & Reduced Lunch
Free & Reduced Lunch
Starting this school year, students at all schools will need to apply if they wish to receive free or reduced-price meals. A child’s status is carried over from the previous year for 30 days. If an application is not received prior to the 30-day cutoff, then the child’s meal status will become a PAID status and the child will begin to accrue charges for any meals that are not paid for.
Please apply as the federal government will use free- or reduced-price meal percentages to allocate Title I funds. Title I is a federal program that seeks to lessen the impact of poverty on learning by providing additional support to schools where 40 percent or more of enrolled students are considered economically disadvantaged. Students qualify for free- or reduced-price meals using a federal formula that takes into account regional household income and family size.
Full price for breakfast is $1, and full price for lunch is $2.85. All students who qualify for reduced-priced meals will receive breakfast at no cost and can purchase lunch for $.40.
