Families can still qualify for Free or Reduced

AASD Families can still qualify for Free or Reduced Status
Posted on 01/24/2022
If you think your family may qualify for Free or Reduced meals, or you aren’t sure, we encourage you to still fill out the Free and Reduced Application. While all AASD students have had access to healthy meals free of charge this school year, this is not confirmed for the 22-23 school year.

If you haven’t filled out a Free and Reduced form this year and you qualify, it may be impacting other benefits that can come along with a completed meal application. The Free and Reduced annual forms are necessary for other programs and may be used to determine if your household is eligible for additional benefits, such as Pandemic Food Share Benefits (P-EBT).

Free and Reduced meal applications need to be filled out each school year. Only one application is needed per household. Families may apply or reapply at any time during the school year. For example, children with a parent or guardian who becomes unemployed or experience financial hardship may become eligible for free and reduced-price meals if the household income drops below the income limit.

Forms can also be completed online through the Parent Portal. When logging into the Portal, the Free and Reduced Meal Benefits Application is available on the center panel under "Meal Benefits.”
