WCSD Free/Reduced Meal Policy, '09-10

June 29, 2009

Washoe County School District announces its policy for providing free and reduced price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.  Each school and/or the Nutrition Services Office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.
Children in households receiving SNAP (Food Stamps), FDPIR, or TANF and most foster children can receive free meals regardless of income.  Households receiving assistance under the SNAP (Food Stamps), FDPIR, or TANF should only submit an Application for Meal Benefits if they are not notified of their current eligibility in the new school year.
If the household income is within the Income Eligibility Guidelines, children can receive free or reduced price meals.  Applications for School Meal Benefits are available at school sites at the start of the school year and the Nutrition Services Office.  There is no charge for reduced price meals for the current school year.

The Washoe County School District offers healthy meals every school day.  Breakfast price is $1.75; lunch price is $2.50 for elementary and $2.75 for middle and high school.
