Children from families whose current income is at or below those shown are eligible for free or reduced price meals.
Applications are available at the school office. To apply, fill out a Free and Reduced Price School Meals Family
Application and return it to the school. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used
only for the purpose of determining eligibility. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year. A
complete application is required as a condition of eligibility. A complete application includes: (1) household income
from all sources or Food Stamp/TANF case number, (2) names of all household members, and (3) the signature and
last four digits of social security number or indication of no social security number of adult household member signing
the application. School officials may verify current income at any time during the school year.
Foster children may be eligible regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside.
If a family member becomes unemployed or if family size changes, the family should contact the school to file a new
application. Such changes may make the children of the family eligible for these benefits.
Households will be notified of their children’s eligibility status for free or reduced price meals. If any children were not
listed on the eligibility notice for families receiving SNAP, TANF or FDPIR, the household should contact the school to
have free meal benefits extended to those children.
If any child(ren) was not listed on the eligibility notice, the household should contact the LEA or school to have free
meal benefits extended to that child(ren).
Under the provisions of the policy, the School Districts’ Food & Nutrition Services will review the applications and
determine eligibility. If a parent is dissatisfied with the ruling of the determining official, they may wish to discuss the
decision with the hearing official on an informal basis or he/she may make a request either orally or in writing to the
District. Hearing procedures are outlined in the policy. A complete copy of the policy is on file in each school and in
the central office where any interested party may review it.
