Free & Reduced Information
Parents/Guardians are responsible for paying for their student’s school meals or for applying for free/reduced-price school meals. Exceptions to this are students who are either Direct Certified for free meals for the current school year (notification letters are mailed each year in August) or who attend a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. The following schools are currently CEP schools: East Derry, Lewistown Elementary, Strodes Mills Elementary and Lewistown Intermediate.
* Parent/Guardian if your student qualifies for Free or Reduced benefits that benefit includes, 1 breakfast MEAL and 1 lunch MEAL daily.
Eligible children can receive meals at school for free or at a reduced price. An application must be completed and approved each school year. Applications are sent home with students on the first day of school. Please list all students in the household on one (1) application. An application can be submitted at any time during the school year. Applications are available at your child's school office or by contacting the Food Service Supervisor, Food Service Office, at (717) 248-0148, extension 2516 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU RECEIVED A LETTER STATING YOU WILL RECEIVE FREE MEALS, YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILL OUT ANOTHER APPLICATION.
Students approved for subsidized meals at another school district are not eligible in our district until an application has been received by the Mifflin County School District Food Service Department.
Students who are approved for free or reduced price meals can receive one (1) breakfast, and one (1) lunch per day at their approved rate. If a second meal is desired, the full rate must be paid.
If you now receive Food Stamps, TANF Cash Assistance for your child, or if your child is a foster child, your child is eligible for free meals. YOU MUST STILL COMPLETE AN APPLICATION.
If your total household income is the same or less than the amounts indicated below, your child may be eligible to receive free or reduced price meals. The reduced price is $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch.2023-2024 Lunch Application Packet
