Free and Reduced Lunch

Meal Applications

Free and reduced-priced meals are available to families who qualify. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. 

How to apply

If your family chooses to apply, please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification, you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money. 

Factors considered in the application process: 

  • Household size is considered all persons, related or unrelated, including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses.
  • The total household income is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income. 
  • Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits.  However, a change in the regulations states that Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.

Note: Only complete one application per family.
