Free and Reduced


● Please, submit ONE application per household, even if you have students at several different schools.


● Children in households receiving benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or

Ohio Works First (OWF) will automatically receive free meals thru Direct Certification.  Applications DO NOT need

to be submitted.


● We recommend that applications be submitted during the first week of school.  It takes several weeks to process

all applications.


● Students who received free/reduced meals on the last day of school for 2014-15 and wish to continue to receive free/reduced meals for the 2015-16 school year, must re-apply and submit a new application.  If this “renewal” application has not been approved by Friday, September 18, meal benefits will expire Monday, September 21, and students will be expected to pay full price for their meals.


● If a student qualifies for a free or reduced lunch, they also qualify for a free or reduced breakfast.


● Applications can be submitted at any time throughout the school year.




● If you need help in filling out the Free & Reduced Price School Meals Family Application or have questions you may

call the number below for assistance.
