Application for Meal Benefits

Online Application

Your student may qualify for free or reduced-price school meals. To apply, complete the online application for Meal Benefits or by following the instructions found in one of the links to the right. Not only will this application determine if your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, it also helps schools qualify for education funds and discounts.

Please note, a new application must be submitted each year.

PANDEMIC ELECTRONIC BENEFIT TRANSFER (p-ebt)

P-EBT benefits provide students eligible for free and reduced-price school meals with funds they can use to purchase groceries. P-EBT benefits replace the school meals children missed because their school was in a distance- or hybrid-learning model.

Please note, just because your student is receiving free meals through their school right now does not mean they have been approved for free or reduced-priced meals.

If you want your student to be considered for P-EBT benefits, apply for Meal Benefits (free/reduced-price meals) by February 28th. If you've already applied, no additional action is required. Please make sure your current address and contact information is correct in Infinite Campus. 

Additional information about P-EBT can be found under the P- EBT 2020-21 tab.
