Free and Reduced-price Meals

Free and Reduced-price Meals

Many families are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. An application for educational benefits must be completed each year to apply for free or reduced-price meals. Applications are available at all schools, the district food service office or online starting in July.

Breakfast plays an important role in providing children the fuel they need to learn. All schools serve breakfast 20 to 30 minutes before school starts. Those who qualify for free or reduced price lunch also qualify for free breakfast.
