Applications for Free or Reduced Price Meals Available Online

Cafeteria Tray with Food  

August 15, 2017 – Applications for free or reduced price meals are available on the West Ada School District website for the 2017-2018 school year. The National School Lunch Program provides free and reduced price meals to qualified students through subsidies to schools. The income eligibility guidelines defined by the program change each year on July 1, meaning families must re-submit their applications for the free or reduced price meals prior to the start of each school year. Families changing school districts also need to re-submit applications, even if moving mid-school year.

 

Families receiving Idaho-issued food stamps qualify for free school meals and do not need to submit an application. If you meet this qualification and have not received a letter from West Ada School District’s School Nutrition Services office by August 20, 2017, please contact Michelle Anderson at 208-855-4575 or anderson.michellek@westada.org and include your SNAP number in the communication. This will prevent any interruption of benefits at the start of the year.

 

Families are responsible for meal charges incurred during application processing.
