Free/Reduced Meals

During the 2022-2023 school year, all students at Butler Elementary, Duncombe Elementary, the Early Childhood Center and Fort Dodge Middle School will receive free meals through the USDA's Community Eligibility Provision program. Families with students at these schools will need to complete a household economic survey screen during the online registration process. Completing this information will also serve as the fee waiver application for the 22-23 school year.

Families with students attending Cooper Elementary, Feelhaver Elementary or Fort Dodge Senior High will need to complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application just like in the past to determine if their students are eligible for free or reduced meals. The application will also serve as the fee waiver application for the 22-23 school year. Families interested in the fee waiver will need to mark "Yes" to the question about it in the online registration process. Families may complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application in one of the following ways beginning July 1, 2022:

  1. Use the Infinite Campus Parent Portal - click on Application/forms, follow the steps to process your Free & Reduced Application online and sign electronically. These instructions walk through the process. 

  2. Applications are linked below. The application will need to be printed, signed and returned to the Central Administration Office at 109 North 25th Street, Fort Dodge for approval.

  3. A hard copy of the Free and Reduced Meal application can be picked up at the Central Administration Office, 109 North 25th Street, Fort Dodge.  Please contact the Food Service Department at 515-574-5677 or uroberts@fdschools.org to have a paper copy mailed to your address.

The District meal charging policy for all students, regardless of building, will remain in place for the 22-23 school year.
