2023-24 Free or Reduced Price Meal Application

It is critical for children to have access to nutritious meals to learn. The Indian River Central School District offers healthy meals every school day. Your children may qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

On this page, you are able to access the online Free or Reduced Price Meal Application hosted at MySchoolApps. A printable version of the form is also included below for your convenience if you wish to print and return the form instead.

You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification, you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-price meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally-funded school benefits.

Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, and grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes--this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.

Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed, yet there does need to be documentation of status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status. Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.

We strongly encourage you to complete either the digital or print version of the Free or Reduced Price Meal Application so that we can ensure your child has access to the healthy meals that will help them to succeed.
