School Meals: Free and Reduced-Price

All families are encouraged to apply for free and reduced-price school meals for the upcoming school year. By applying, families receive more than free and reduced-price school meals, and your child’s school also benefits.


Some of the many benefits are:

  • Your child’s school can receive additional funding to enhance the educational experience for all students.
  • School fees can be waived or reduced, including athletic fees, course fees, and activity and field trip fees tied to curriculum.
  • Students in grades 9-12 can receive assistance with post-graduation planning, scholarships, state and national testing (including SAT, ACT, Advanced  Placement and International Baccalaureate), and postsecondary enrollment.
  • Families can qualify for additional resources, such as medical, food, and financial assistance.
  • Families can receive support with community services, such as internet, gym memberships, and passes to museums and cultural events.

Families must reapply for free and reduced-price school meals each school year. You will receive your eligibility letter in the mail or by email. United States citizenship or immigration status is not a condition of eligibility for free and reduced-price school meals.
