New Free & Reduced meal applications must be completed each year - use only 2014-15 form
The Free and Reduced Priced Meal Program is available to assist families during times of financial hardship. The School Nutrition Program accepts free and reduced meal applications throughout the entire school year. Students approved for free or reduced priced meals may eat breakfast AND lunch free or at a reduced cost. Parents can rest assured the information supplied on the form is kept strictly confidential and student identification is protected with the computer software used at the cashier’s station.
For faster processing, you can access our ONLINE application - available late July 2014
Please read the instructions carefully, as the application has changed significantly.
This is a household application, so please submit only one (1) application per entire family/household via either online application or by returning paper application received at school.
Eligibility for Free or Reduced price meals is not retroactive; the benefit begins the day the application is approved, not when it is submitted. Your child needs to have money on his/her meal account until you receive notice that the 2014-2015 F&R meal application has been approved.
Completed and signed applications can be submitted via one of the 3 methods:
- online application (link will be active in late July)
- paper copy (received at school) returned to any school cafeteria
- paper copy returned via US mail to:
Food & Nutrition Services, 1140 Dahlonega Hwy, Cumming GA 30040
Applications will be processed within 10 school days of receipt at the central office. Eligibility for students approved for free or reduced priced meals will be effective within an hour of being processed at the central office. Written notification of approval or denial will be sent via US mail or a valid email address provided with the online application on the day the application is processed. Determinations cannot be given over the phone.
