Applying for Free and Reduced Price School Meals

Last Published: 06/25/2015

Schools send school meal applications home at the beginning of each school year. However, you may apply for school meals at any time throughout the school year by submitting a household application directly to your school. Your school will provide you with an application upon request.

If you are earning at or below current Income Eligibility Guidelines, we encourage you to contact your school to fill out a school meal application. The school or local education agency will process your application and issue an eligibility determination.

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 affected by current economic conditions. State Workforce Agency Administrators have been asked to inform those seeking unemployment benefits about the availability of free and reduced price school meals.

Please contact your school for additional information and assistance.
