The distribution of school meals will be changing once classes start on August 3. Meals will again be served on a free, reduced-price, or paid basis depending on a family’s eligibility status.
Meals will be served curbside daily at each school site (except Estrella Foothills) between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Meals are only available to students who are presently enrolled in a Laveen School District School. Meals may picked up from any location regardless of the school your child is enrolled at. Parents or students must have their child’s Student ID badge or Student ID number in order to pick up meals. These will be scanned/ entered prior to distribution.
Breakfast and lunch will be served at one time. Breakfast is free for all Laveen students. Lunch is served on a free, reduced-price, or paid basis depending on a family’s eligibility status.
Qualifying for Free, Reduced Price Meals
Laveen schools serve free or reduced-price lunches to families that qualify based on income requirements.
Families must reapply annually. If you qualified last year your eligibility expires soon. Use our secure online portal, EZMealApp.com, to complete the 2020-21 application safely and quickly. All families are encouraged to apply. Applications are processed year round and are kept confidential.
Families that meet federal income levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Lunches are currently priced at $2.50; the reduced price is $.40. Breakfast is served free to all students, regardless of eligibility, before school each day.
In addition to receiving a discount on meal prices, completed applications provide additional funds to the district in the form of grant money. Funding for prevention programs, parent training, and interventions for students in reading and math is often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced–price lunch.
Fee Based Meals
Families who do not qualify for free meals are encouraged to add funds to their child’s meal account using the secure portal EZSchoolPay.
