Dear Black Tiger Families,
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress and the US Department of Agriculture authorized waivers allowing all students, regardless of family income, to receive free breakfast and lunch. In 2022, the government elected not to extend the waivers past June 30, 2022, thus eliminating the program for the 2022-2023 school year. Following the end of the free meal program, families must complete the free and reduced lunch application to participate in the free and reduced meal program.
Applying for free and reduced lunches also provides benefits to help reduce the cost of student instructional fees, pay-to-participate fees, and technology fees.
To find the 2022-2023 school year application, click here “Free/Reduced Lunch” to be directed to PaySchools Central, where you can complete the application. Only one application per household is needed.
Families unsure if they qualify for these benefits should still complete an application to ensure all eligible families and their students have access to free or reduced meals.
