Free and Reduced Lunch Program – click here to apply!
Apply online for free and reduced meals for your child. It’s confidential, easy, and can help both your budget and your child’s school. You qualify if your household income is at or below the federal guidelines, or if your family receives food stamps, TANF, or FDPIR—even if your situation is short-term, such as a temporary layoff. The program is confidential, easy, and good for both your budget and your child’s school.
Sometimes families hesitate to apply for the school meal program because they don’t want to strain their school’s resources. Not to worry! The school district receives federal reimbursement for free and reduced-price meals, and individual schools can receive additional federal funding based on how many students qualify for the program. If you fill out a form and qualify, you are helping both your family and your school.
