Each schools sends school meal applications home at the beginning of each school year. However, you may apply for free or reduced school meals any time during the school year by submitting an application directly to your school. You may ask for an application any time during the school year. If you’re earning at or below current Income Eligibility Guidelines, you are encouraged to contact your school to fill out a free and reduced school meal application. Applications are reviewed by qualified and designated school officials before granting free or reduced price benefits. If you receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, all of your children who attend school automatically qualify for free school meals. Participation in other Federal assistance programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) also provides automatic eligibility. Please contact your school to determine if you need to fill out an application.
If you are eligible for unemployment compensation, you might also be eligible for free or reduced price school meals. With the cooperation of the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration, we are reaching out to vulnerable households. State Workforce Agency Administrators have been asked to let households seeking unemployment benefits about the availability of free and reduced price school meals.
