Code No. 707.3 Free or Reduced Cost Meals Eligibility

Students enrolled and attending school in the school district, who are unable to afford the special milk program, the cost or a portion of the cost of the school lunch, breakfast, and supplemental foods, will be provided the school food program services at no cost or at a reduced cost.

It is the responsibility of the lunch secretary to determine if a student qualifies for free or reduced cost school food services.  Students whom the principal believes are improperly nourished will not be denied the school food program services simply because the paperwork has not been completed.

Students who participate in free or reduced price meal programs will not be distinguished in any way from students who pay the regular price; great care shall be taken to protect the anonymity of these students.  Their names will not be made known to any person except such staff member or members as needed to make the special arrangements for them.

Employees, students and others will be required to deposit money into their accounts for meals consumed.
