Free & Reduced Price Meal Applications

Please remember that you are required to complete a new meal application each school year. Only ONE application per household is required. You do not need to complete an application if you receive notification that your child(ren) automatically qualify for free meals based on SNAP or TANF. Your completed application should be turned into the cafeteria manager at your child’s school or to the School Nutrition Office located in the School Administration Building. Last year’s eligibility determination carries forward to the first thirty (30) days of the new school year, allowing households time to complete the application and for a current eligibility determination to be made.
