Application for Educational Benefits

Students eligible for this program follow the same procedure as full-pay students. Complete confidentiality is maintained regarding a student’s eligibility status. The system will allow students eligible for free or reduced-price meals with one full breakfast and lunch each day (including milk) at no charge. To be considered a full meal a student must select a minimum of three out of the five meal components offered (one of those must be a fruit or vegetable).

All a la carte purchases are NOT covered by the School Meals Program; those purchases are charged to a student’s lunch account. Students who make a la carte purchases must have money in their accounts to make these purchases regardless of what their eligibility status is.
