Applying for Free and Reduced Price School Meals

Schools send school meal applications home at the beginning of each school year. However, you may apply for school meal benefits at any time during the school year.

If you are earning at or below current income eligibility guidelines,we encourage you to fill out a school meal application. The local education agency will process your application and issue an eligibility determination.

If you are receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits, your child automatically qualifies for free school meals. Please contact your school to determine if you need to fill out an application.

Please remember to fill out only one application per household, not per child.

We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information.

**Prior Year Expiration Warning - Each year a new application must be filled out in order to approve your child for the current school year. Any student who was eligible for the Free or Reduced Price Meal Program on the last day of school last school year can participate in the program for the first 30 days of the next school year. After that time, a new application must be approved for the current school year.
