Free and Reduced Meals Update: Universal Access to Free School Meals Has Ended

Universal access to free school meals, that was made available for the past two school years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has come to an end. The federal funding for the program was not renewed for the upcoming school year. Therefore, only eligible families will receive free or reduced meals upon successful completion of the application process for the 2022-23 school year.

An application for an eligible family must be completed, at any time, for every school year. Applications are approved based on federal standards for family size and income.

To apply for Free and Reduced Meals for the upcoming school year, please visit the Food Services Department page. The page includes resources such as:
