These are unprecedented times and the economy is taking a toll on a growing number of families. Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), the supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps and the Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Programs, make it possible for children to have nutritious food, even in difficult times.

You may apply for the Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Program by printing out the application (listed below) or applying online:

Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." The forms can be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.

Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses - DO NOT INCLUDE FOSTER CHILDREN. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.

If you receive a direct certification letter informing you that your child(ren) will receive free or reduced-priced meals, you do NOT need to fill out an application.

Foster Children - In certain cases, foster children are eligible for free and reduced-price meals regardless of your income. If you have foster children living with you and want to apply for them, please contact us.
