Meal Assistance Programs

More Than A Meal

The primary use of the meal assistance programs’ data is for school meals. But our district also relies on free/reduced eligibility for school fee waivers, magnet school transportation assistance, Family Resource & Youth Services Centers, Title 1 and other school funding programs, Special Education, sports/summer camp scholarships, other meal assisting programs, discounted internet services (EBB program), college pre-exam testing discounts, KEES scholarships and other college financial assistance, and more.

Please check below to see which program your student's school participates in, and which application or form your household should complete for additional benefits.
