Does your household already receive SNAP/TANF/FDPIR benefits?

  • The free school meal benefit will apply to any child living in your household.

If you do not receive SNAP/TANF/FDPIR benefits, applying for school meals is quick and easy: 

  1. Apply online if your school has an online application.
