Free & Reduced Online Application
Applications now available online
Some Clark County school children may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals, depending on family size and income, as part of the National School Lunch/Breakfast Program. The program provides nutritious meals every school day for eligible students in elementary, middle/junior high, and high schools. The income guidelines eligibility chart will help you determine whether your child qualifies for free or reduced-price meals.
The fastest way for a student to start receiving benefits is to apply electronically at www.applyforlunch.com. It is exceptionally user friendly and not only speeds the process but it is more accurate. Parents should submit the application as soon as possible after August 1, 2012. Food Service employees will be available to accept paper applications during back-to-school fairs at local malls in August. Applications are available in all schools, as well, after August 15, 2012. Please submit applications as soon as possible. Applications for meal benefits may also be submitted any time during the school year. Parents are advised that benefits will not begin until the application has been processed and approved in the main office of the Food Service Department.
Students who qualified for the program at the end of last year may eat according to last year's eligibility while applications for the current year are being processed. Last year's eligibility will expire on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012. Students without a new school year 2012-2013 application approved by the Food Service Department will be required to pay for meals.
To allow ample time for processing, please submit your application for the 2012-2013 school year no later than Friday Sept 21, 2012.
