Free and Reduced-Price Meals

Meals are made available on a reduced-price (Breakfast .30¢ and Lunch .40¢) or free basis to students from families who meet certain income requirements which are determined by the U.S. Government. 

Important: A new application must be filled out at the beginning of each school year in order for the meal benefits to continue. Meal benefits begin on the day the application is processed by Food and Nutrition Services and continue throughout the school year in which the application is approved, the summer, and approximately the first thirty days of the next school year.

“A private school scholarship is available.”

If your household qualifies for free or reduced-priced lunch, your students may be eligible to receive a state-supported scholarship to a private school. The program, called the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, was created in 2001. Step Up For Students manages the program. The scholarship is based on income and not on the academic performance of the student or public school. The scholarship helps pay tuition at more than 1,500 participating private schools statewide; a separate transportation scholarship is available to attend a public school in another county. For more information, visit www.StepUpForStudents.org or call 877-735-7837, or email info@stepupforstudents.org
