** New for 2024-2025! Meals will be provided free of charge to ALL Laveen students. Details coming soon!**

Families are encouraged to submit a school meal application for free or reduced-price meal benefits because this information may be used for other programs, such as Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), Federal and State funding for your school, reduced registration fees for academic tests, free or discounted fees for athletic programs, discounted rates for internet service, and many more. See the income guidelines for free or reduced-price benefits.

If you have any further questions regarding your free or reduced-price meal application please contact the Child Nutrition Department.

Parents will be notified by email or letter once the application has been processed.

Families may apply or reapply at any time during the school year, so if you are not eligible now, you may apply or reapply if your circumstances change that might then qualify your child(ren) to receive federal meal benefits.

Completed applications bring additional funds to the District in the form of grant money. Dollars that come from the state and federal government for prevention programs, parent training, extra help for students with reading, math, and other assistance are often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced lunch. It is important that all parents who qualify (according to the Income Chart shown on the application form), whether or not they choose to participate in the lunch program, apply for meals. The higher our count for free or reduced-price lunch, the more dollars generated for student and parent programs within our District. All information provided will be kept confidential.
