Free and Reduced Price Meals

The Free and Reduced Price Meal Program is available to assist families during times of financial hardship.  The School Nutrition Program accepts free and reduced meal applications throughout the school year.  Parents/Guardians may apply at any time. Students approved for free or reduced-priced meals may eat lunch free or at a reduced price. 

It is important to give our children healthy and nutritious meals to improve their chances of success and improve their learning opportunities. Research indicates eating habits affect learning. The USDA’s school meals programs help ensure all students have access to nutritious meals. 

Parents receive information and applications for free and reduced meals from their schools, they may request an application from our Central Office staff, or download the form from the link below:
