Although there will be a charge for seconds on the main meal and extra milk.

What this means for you:

Your student will receive meals at no cost for the entire 2021-2022 school year.

Please complete the enclosed income eligibility application. Although your student will be receiving meals at no cost, completion of the application is important for the following reasons:

● P-EBT Benefits: Households may be eligible for Pandemic-EBT benefits through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. P-EBT benefits are based in part on eligibility for Free and Reduced-Price meals.

● Fee Waivers and Health Insurance: Student Free and Reduced-Price meal eligibility can be shared with other programs (with parental consent) for the purposes of fee waivers, scholarships, Medicaid and SCHIP.

● School Benefits: Your school receives State and local funding based on the number of students eligible for Free and Reduced-Price meals.

Important: Your student(s) will continue to receive meals at no cost for the 2021-22 school year regardless of the eligibility determination of your household’s SY2021-22 application.

Application Forms can be found under the forms section under the Preschool, Elementary, and Jr/Sr sections.
