National School Lunch Program free/reduced applications are available for download on web page under documents: Household Eligibility Application for Meal Benefits & Fee Waivers or can be picked up in the school office.
Households that are directly certified through the State of Illinois SNAP/TANF program will receive letters stating such, therefore will have no need to complete an application.
Households not directly certified are encouraged to apply for free/reduced priced meals at any time during the school year.
Households are responsible for meal payments until benefits are issued. Applications not submitted and approved prior to the start of the school year are subject to meal charges to student's account that are the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
