Free and Reduced Meal Information
If you are interested in applying for Free or Reduced Meals and Textbook Benefits, you may go to http://www.LunchApp.com and follow the instructions to complete and submit your application for free or reduced benefits on-line. You also can pick up an application for Free or Reduced Meals and Textbook Benefits at any of our schools and complete the form and return it to your children's school. There is a grace period for those who were approved for free/reduced meals at the end of the prior school year until September 30, 2017. There is no grace period for Textbook assistance. A new application must be completed and approved each school year to continue meal benefits and to receive textbook assistance.
You can complete one family application for all of your children attending a Southwest Allen County School and turn it in at any of our schools. Foster children continue to need to have a separate application for each child.
You may submit your application for approval online at http://www.LunchApp.com. If you need help or have other questions, you may call Food Service Director at 431-2282.
Please note that we cannot approve your application unless it is filled out correctly and completely. If you want to receive textbook assistance, you must check yes in the box provided. You must sign the application! Two signatures are required if you want textbook assistance as well as free/reduced meals. Also, make sure you note how often you receive your income on the application. It may take up to ten days to process your application, so please submit it as soon as possible after July 1, 2017. If you don’t complete the application correctly, it will take a few days longer. You will be notified by mail when your application is processed.
Until your application has been approved, you will need to pay the full price for your student’s meals. Ala carte items are not included with the Free or Reduced benefits, so if you want your student to purchase extra milk, juice or other ala carte items, you must send extra money for them.
