Before you begin…

there are a few things you should know.

If you received a letter from the school saying that your children were automatically approved (directly certified) for free meals for the 2020-2021 school year then you do not need to submit an application.

We need only one application for all the children in your household that attend school in Menahga Public School District.

Eligibility for free or reduced price school meal benefits is based on any one of these three things:

  • your total household income and size in the month the application is filled out, or the month before, or
  • your child’s individual status as foster, homeless, migrant or runaway, or
  • participation in an assistance program by any member of your household

Your US citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for free and reduced price benefits.

If you have questions at any point during the application, click the question mark icon  to get help with the current section.
