School Meals Application
2023-2024 MEAL APPLICATIONS ARE HERE!
Please read the following information before you scroll down to the bottom of this page
for applications and instructions
Parents and/or guardians must re-apply each school year for the free & reduced meal program.
Even if your child doesn't plan to eat school lunches, it is important to fill out the free/reduced priced meal program application to ensure our schools and families receive the available resources.
To apply, an adult household member needs to complete an application to determine eligibility.
One application should be used to list all children in the household.
Eligibility is determined by household size and income criteria. Children from households whose income is at or below the levels set by the USDA Child Nutrition Program are eligible. Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals regardless of income and should be included on your application. All children in households receiving benefits from SNAP (food stamps), the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations or TANF, can get free meals regardless of your income.
Please remember that it is the parent's responsibility to make sure the District Office Food & Nutrition office receives the application. Each application can take up to 10 days to process. Benefits do not begin until the date your application is approved and you are responsible for all meals purchased prior to that date.
Print the application, fill it out completely with signature and bring it or mail it to the Child Nutrition Office located at 6411 North Robert Rd., Building 200, Prescott Valley, AZ 86314 or return the application to your child's school. Please call Denise Vaughn at 928-759-5013 if you have any questions.
Applications are also available in English and Spanish at each school's office and from the school cafeterias.
