Eligibility for free or reduced priced school meals benefits is based on any one of these three things:

  • Your current household size and total income
  • Your child's individual status as foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway, or
  • Participation in an assistance program by any member of your household

Things you'll need

  • If you participate in SNAP, TANF, or FDPIR you will need to know your case number (not your card or account number)
  • If you do not participate in any of the above assistance programs, you will need to report your total household income. In that case...
  • If anyone in your household has a job, you may need to reference the earnings statement or pay stubs to report your gross income, which is different that the amount you actually receive in your paycheck.
  • If anyone receives Social Security or retirement benefits, you may need to gather the benefit statements to report the amount and frequency of the payments.
  • You may also need to reference other financial documents for additional sources of income.

Your US citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for free or reduced price benefits.
