Free & Reduced Meal Program

Thanks to nationwide waivers for federally funded meal programs, school meals were free to all students through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, these waivers have expired, so schools must return to charging for breakfast and lunch and can only provide free or reduced-price meals to students who qualify for those benefits. Our priority is the health and well-being of all students, so they can succeed in the classroom and beyond. School meals are among the healthiest meals that children eat in a day and we encourage all students to participate. Families can qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on household income by submitting a meal application.
