Free & Reduced Lunches

Prices for school meals and how to apply for FREE meals

The Covid-19 pandemic waivers that provided school districts with much needed freedom to distribute food to kids free of charge during the school year expired on June 30. These waivers were put in place in March 2020 to give families in need access to free meals when schools were closed early in the pandemic and were extended through last school year.

While a portion of the waivers were extended through the 2022-23 school year, they do not include free meals for all families. Once again, families will be charged for school meals unless they qualify for free or reduced price meals under the National School Lunch Program or if they attend a school that has been designated as a school under the Community Eligibility Provision.

Meal Costs:

  • Breakfast: $1.45 elementary/$1.70 secondary

  • Lunch: $2.85 elementary/$3.00 secondary
