Free and Reduced Lunches:

The Free and Reduced Lunch Program provides students from eligible families with a free or reduced lunch at school.

Your children may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals if:
  • Your family receives government food stamps
  • Your family receives Aid for Needy Families with Children (ANFC)
  • Your family income is at, or less than, the levels listed below.
Applications for free and reduced meals are available from the school office.  All applications will be kept confidential.

The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 has established that once a household is approved for free and reduced-price benefits, the household will remain eligible for those benefits for the remainder of the school year plus a maximum of 30 operating days after the first operating day in the following school year.

This means the household is no longer required to report changes in circumstances, such as an increase in income, a decrease in household size, or when the household is no longer certified as eligible for food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
