        Frequently Asked Questions

        Do I need to fill out an application for each child? 

        No. Complete one Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application for all children in the household. Please be sure to fill out all the required information.

        Who can get free meals?   

        • Income—Children can get free or reduced-price meals if your household’s gross income (total without deductions) is within the limits described in the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines.
        • Special Program Participants—All children in households receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), can get free meals regardless of income. 
        • Foster—Foster children under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court-appointed guardian are eligible for free meals.
        • Homeless, Runaway, and Migrant Farm Worker—Children who meet the definition of homeless, runaway, or migrant farm worker qualify for free meals. If you haven’t been approved by the District that a child's status is homeless, runaway, or migrant farm worker in the United States, please contact the campus counselor for each child.
