Welcome Back to School - Apply for Free and Reduced Price Meals

PLEASE BE AWARE - Many of the grants and waivers available during the pandemic are no longer available, and school meals are no longer free to all children. Households who need assistance purchasing school meals must apply for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits or qualify by direct certification.

Every household must reapply each school year or be direct certified for their student to receive free and reduced price meal benefits. Parents are encouraged to annually submit one application (after July 1) for their entire household before their children attend school.  Be sure to apply early to allow time for the approval process.  Students who do not qualify for free or reduced price meals at time of service will be charged for their meal.   

If you have questions or concerns about your child's Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits, please email us at or call the Child Nutrition Department at (801) 974-8380.
