Meal Benefits for School Year 2016-2017

Children from families whose income falls within USDA income-eligibility guidelines may be eligible for either free or reduced price meals. 


Free and Reduced Meal Benefits

Newly enacted legislation effective with the 2011-2012 school year allows any child that is qualified for the Free and Reduced Meal Benefits to receive free breakfast at our schools. Previously, state mandated only selected school sites provide free breakfast to participating kindergarten students. With this new legislation, kindergarten students are only eligible for free breakfast if they have qualified under the Free and Reduced Meal Benefits. We encourage parents who believe they may qualify for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits to submit an application. School meals ensure all families are provided equitable opportunities for healthy nutritious meals during the school day. Please see the SCHOOL OFFICE if you have any questions about this opportunity. This is a great opportunity for any child that is qualified for the Free and Reduced Meal Benefits program to received FREE breakfast daily. Please fill out the form required for this opportunity and return it to as soon as possible. The link below will take you to the new online free/reduced lunch application. You will need to create an account with the site.

OnlineFree/Reduced Lunch Application

A single new application per family must be completed each school year. Your child will continue any meal benefit from last school year for only the first 30 days of this school year. Benefits will discontinue unless a new application is processed as approved within these days. Families are responsible for all charges for meals consumed by the student until the new application has been approved. We are happy to offer assistance in completing the application as necessary. Please call 910-455-2211 ext 20573 with any questions.
