Applications again required for free/reduced price school meals

 
July 27, 2022

Public school breakfast and lunch have been offered for  free to students for the past two years due to the pandemic. This school year, applications are once again required by the state for free and reduced-price meals. This fall, families who need assistance paying for school meals will be required to submit an application for free and reduced-price school meals for the first time since 2020.

This change comes from Congress’ passing of the $3 billion “Keep Kids Fed Act,” which reinstates a requirement, suspended during the pandemic, that low-income students who fall above the poverty line pay a reduced price for school meals.

During the pandemic, the full price of school meals was covered for all students and no applications were required.
