• It's more than a meal. Your application can also earn more money for your school. Here's how:
      
    Why?  Because it turns out those applications could increase the amount of money your school receives to pay for resources that help students:  academic coaches, technology, musical instruments, field trips and more!
     
    Schools receive more money and resources based on the number of families who qualify for free and reduced meals - regardless of whether they decide to use the program.
     
    Here's how it works:

    Easy and private: There's no need to bring us paper applications, and we keep your information private. Your child will never be identified as a participant. 
     
    Another benefit?  You and your student may be eligible to receive other services: Not sure you'll use the meal program? That's OK!  You don't have to - but keep your approval letter.  It could qualify you for other services, like reduced-cost bus transportation.
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Families in the following schools DO NOT need to fill out a meal application (for school funding purposes, families at these schools MUST complete alternative income verification forms):
