Did you know you can apply for school meals any time during the school year by submitting an application directly to Sizer?

School Meals Save You Money!

A high school student eating in the school cafeteria every day spends: $522.00 per year on Lunch; $217.50 per year on Breakfast.

By utilizing Free or Reduced meal benefits, those costs for lunch an entire year could be: $0.00 for Free Students or $69.60 for Reduced Students

You may ask for an application any time during the school year. If you’re earning at or below current Income Eligibility Guidelines, you are encouraged to contact Sizerto fill out a school meal application. Applications are reviewed by the Director of Finance before granting free or reduced price benefits. If you receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, all of your children who attend school automatically qualify for free school meals. Participation in other Federal assistance programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) also provides automatic eligibility. Please contact Sizerto determine if you need to fill out an  application.

You can trust that your family information is kept confidential and can only be used for determining eligibility for free or reduced price meals at school. It is also encouraged that you complete the “Sharing Information” sheet attached to the application so your child(ren) can receive the same free or reduced status for other school programs. Free and Reduced Program status information is confidential and will not identify or single out any students on the program.
