Free & Reduced Meals


Children who qualify under U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines may get meals free or a reduced price of $0.40 for lunch and no cost (free) for breakfast. All meals served must meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Your child can get free school meals if you get food stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or benefits from the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR). If your total household income is the same or below the amount on the Income Guidelines chart, your child can get meals either free or at a reduced price.
