We need your help to ensure that crucial programs for your children do not receive cuts in funding as a result of fewer free/reduced-price lunch applications being submitted.

Many of the services we provide such as tutoring, support staff, and access to technology are funded through state and federal grants. This funding is based on the National School Lunch Program Free and Reduced lunch applications we receive from families each year.

Even though your child is currently receiving free meals for the remainder of the school year, we ask you to please take a few minutes to submit an application – even if you think you will not qualify. Every application received is important. Families with approved free or reduced-price lunch applications may also qualify for additional federal benefits such as the Pandemic EBT card.

Please click on and complete your application TODAY on the secure portal. It takes just a few minutes. Paper applications are also available online at our Child Nutrition Services page.

Our eligibility for this funding expires in early January, so we appreciate you completing the application now. Your application will remain active for the first 30 days of the 2021-2022 school year.
