How do I find out if I am eligible? Students may qualify for free or reduced price meals if total household income is at or below the amount of Federal Income Guidelines. Click here for the 2020-21 income guidelines (PDF).
Students in households receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly Food Stamps) or TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) benefits and most foster children can receive free meals regardless of household income. Households receiving WIC, Oregon Health Plan or other governmental assistance may qualify.
When can I apply? Applications may be submitted anytime during the year. Explore your options and apply today.
Return completed applications to the District Office (located within Creslane Elementary).
Can I apply online? Yes, visit https://www.ode.state.or.us/apps/frlapp to complete an online application.
Do I need to apply for each child separately? No, only one application is required per household, and all household members should be listed. Foster children are now considered members of the household.
Remember the program is easy and confidential.
