The Meal Benefit Program is also known as the Free and Reduced Priced Meals Program.
If your child was eligible last school year, and you haven't already received a benefit letter from us, you'll need to fill out a new application as soon as possible.
Applications are like yogurt - they expire! An approved application is only good for the school year your filled it out during, plus a "grace period" at the beginning of the new school year.
Don't wait till the last minute - you could accidentally end up with a bill due to the cafeteria!
If your student's grace period runs out, any meals picked up are at FULL MENU PRICE. Families are responsible for all student account charges and negative balances.
