The Free and Reduced Lunch Form is Not Just About LUNCH
The district receives funding from the state and federal governments to support the needs of low-income students. For each student who qualifies for free or reduced price meals, our district receives thousands of additional dollars in funding. Studies show that many eligible students, in particular middle school and high school students, do not complete this form each year, leaving hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding for the district on the table. Even a small increase in eligible forms collected results in significantly more money to support our schools and students.
Even if families do not plan to utilize food services for school meals, completing the Free and Reduced Lunch Form has the potential to increase education funding
The truth is that it is important for EVERY family to fill out this form because doing so helps bring much needed additional money and services to your child's school and to the district
