How To Apply

To apply for free or reduced priced meals for your child(ren), please complete the meal application below, to the attention of Mr. Jerry Carlson, and return to any school office or school food service worker.

Duration of Eligibility

Your child's(ren's) eligibility is in effect from the date of eligibility for the current school year and for up to 30 operating days in the subsequent school year.  However, this does not apply when the initial eligibility determination was incorrect or when verification of household eligibility does not support the level of benefits for which the household was approved. 


You may apply for free and reduced price meals at any time during the school year.  If you are not eligible now but have a change such as: a decrease in household income, an increase in household size, become unemployed, or receive Basic Food or TANF for your children, you may fill out an application at that time.
