Free & Reduced Price Meals
If you believe
your children qualify for free or reduced priced meals we encourage
you to complete the application promptly. There are 2 ways to do
this. The quickest is to go to
www.lunchapp.com to fill it out. Your online application will usually be processed the same day.
Once processed, a letter describing your eligibility status will be mailed to your home.
You can also fill one out at either the
administration building or your student’s school. This will help
extend your budget plus may also assist your school in receiving
allowed 10 operating days to process applications and try to process
them as quickly as possible.
YOU MUST PAY FULL PRICE
FOR MEALS, UNTIL THE APPLICATION IS APPROVED.
By law we automatically extend the free and reduced status
for the first twenty operating days of the next school
year. Approval of your application cannot be retroactive to
meals already served.
We treat your
student’s free and reduced meal status as highly confidential. If
your income changes and you believe you qualify for free or reduced
meals, you may complete an application at any time during the school
year. You can go to
www.lunchapp.com to fill one out or go to your child’s school
office or to the administration building. If your student is approved
for free or reduced meals, we encourage your student to take
advantage of this valuable benefit.
Privacy Act Statement:
This explains how we will use the information you give us. The
National School Lunch Act requires the information on this
application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do
not, we cannot approve your children for free or reduced price
meals. The Social Security Number of the adult household member who
signs the application is required unless you list a Food Stamp case
number, or if you are applying for a foster child. You must check
the “I do not have a Social Security Number” box if the adult
household member signing the application does not have a Social
Security Number. We will use your information to see if your
children are eligible for free or reduced price meals, to run the
program and to enforce the rules of the program. We may share your
eligibility information with education programs to help them
evaluate, fund or determine benefits for those programs, and
auditors for program reviews.
