Free & Reduced Cost Meals –
Information & Application

We want to provide every student with access to nutritional, balanced meals during every school day. Students may be eligible for free or reduced cost meals through participation in certain Federal Assistance Programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or based on their status as a homeless, migrant, runaway, or foster child. Children enrolled in a federally-funded Head Start program or a comparable State-funded pre-kindergarten program are also eligible for free meals. Students can also qualify based on household income and family size. To find out if you qualify for free or reduced cost meals, fill out the online application below. You can submit your completed application online through the Meal Magic Family Portal.  Any questions can be forwarded to Megan Haase via the contact information at the top of this page.
