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.

Global Eats

No passport? No problem! Go on an adventure with our new program, Global Eats. The school cafeteria is often one of the first places a child gets to taste and learn about foods from outside their family's recipes or traditional cultural dishes. Highlighting the unique ingredients and authentic flavors from cuisines around the planet, Global Eats brings a world of flavors to your cafeteria. The program invites students on a food exploration that celebrates cultural heritages with food, education, and fun. Complete with lesson plans, new recipes, swag, social media, and its own website, this is a trip to look forward to.

Global Eats prioritizes what kids want - time together, a healthy planet, inclusivity, and shared experiences. We're in a unique position where we have a front-row seat to kids' evolving preferences, which allows us to continue building fun, educational, food-focused programs that create deeper bonds between classmates and friends - it's how we're making sure students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than they came in.
