Reminder: Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications

A Message from Food Services

This is a reminder that we accept free and reduced meals applications throughout the school year. The priority deadline to return applications is Oct. 31. The 2019-20 application is available online or can be found in the back of the Family Handbook and Calendar mailed to families in August. Printed applications are also available in your school office. Families only need to fill out one application for all children in a household.

Applying for free or reduced meals is not only important for providing meals for your children but it also helps support district funding. Eligibility is based on any one of these three factors: 1) total household income and size; 2) a child’s individual status as foster, homeless, migrant or runaway; and 3) participation in an assistance program by any member of your household.

Note: If you have already submitted an application for free or reduced meals for the 2019-20 school year, you do not need to reapply unless your income status has changed. Citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for receiving benefits.

For questions about the free and reduced meals application, contact Food Services at (360) 676-6504.
