FREE AND REDUCED PROGRAM
Students from families whose income is at or below the level shown on the income guidelines below may be eligible for either free or reduced-price meals. Reduced-price meals are 40 cents per lunch or 30 cents per breakfast. All students are treated the same, regardless of ability to pay. Additional items outside of what is considered a meal (a la carte, second entrees, snacks, etc.) are not included in the F&R program and are at full price. In the operation of the school lunch programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex, color, national origin, age or handicap.
The Free and Reduced Meal Program is an annual program, and a new application is required each school year to qualify for benefits. Beginning Monday, July 24, 2023, eligible families may apply for meal benefits online with the LinqConnect Free & Reduced Application (formerly Titan Family portal) or by submitting a paper application to our Food & Nutrition office address below. If a member of your household receives Food Assistance (FA), or Temporary Assistance to Families (TAF) from the State of Kansas, or you have a foster student you may not need to apply.
