Breakfast is available to all students. Cost is $1.60

Lunch is served everyday. Cost is $3.00 

The school meals program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture ( USDA). Since the start of the COVID 19 Pandemic, school corporations across the country have been operating with the use of a federal waiver that allowed them to feed every child for free through the end of the 21-22 school year. The use of this waiver will not be available for school year 22-23 and the school corporations must return to the traditional eligibility requirements for free, reduced and paid meals. This means that for School Year 2022-2023, our school corporation will process free and reduced price meal benefit applications.


Households are encouraged to apply before the start of the year to avoid unpaid meal charges. Students who are not approved for free or reduced price meal benefits will be classified as paid status and meal charges will begin to accumulate starting the first day of school. Meal charged accrued before the approval of meal benefit application will be the responsibility of the household. It is suggested have money in the student lunch account to cover two weeks of meals and to give time for meal applications to be processed.

You do NOT need to complete an application if:

  • You receive notification that your child(ren) are directly certified.
  • You know your household does not qualify for meal benefits. (Please have money in your child’s account on the first day of school)
