Free/Reduced Meals


Iowa Income Eligibility Guidelines 16-17

Here are some frequently asked questions about free or reduced priced meals:

Who can get free meals?
Children in households getting Food Assistance or FIP and most foster children can get free meals regardless of your income. Also, if your household income is within the limits on the Federal Income Chart, your children can get free or reduced price meals.

Will the information I give be checked?
Yes, we may ask you to send written proof of the information you provide.

If I don't qualify now, may I apply again later?
Yes. You may apply at any time during the school year if your household size goes up, income goes down, or if you start getting Food Stamps or FIP. If you lose your job, your children may be able to get free or reduced price meals during the time you are unemployed.

What if I disagree with the school's decision about my application?
You should talk to Ursuala Roberts.  Her number is 515-574-5677 and she is the expert in our district for questions on the free and reduced meals application.

If you have other questions or need help, call 515-574-5673.
