Free & Reduced Lunch Application

Important reminder for the new school year: For your child to receive school meals for free or at a reduced cost, an application should be completed. Follow the link to find the application, here.


In the wake of Hurricane Irma recovery, many of our families were able to receive food benefits through the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as D-SNAP, as part of disaster recovery, last fall. This also qualified many of our students for free or reduced-price school meals. However, eligibility for free and reduced-price school meals from participation in Disaster SNAP ended on June 30, 2018.


Your child or children may still be able to receive free or reduced-price school meals if you meet the household income eligibility guidelines. I encourage families to submit an application if you would like your child to receive school meal benefits for school year 2018-2019 at If you are receiving regular SNAP benefits, your child will be automatically enrolled and there is no need to apply.
