Free and Reduced Price Meals Application Process

How do I get an application?       

Your student(s) will receive an application at the beginning of the school year but you may submit an application at any time during the school year.  You can also pick up an application at your student's school or fill out an on-line application by clicking the link online meal application on the left side of this page.  All applications are confidential.  Notification of status (free, reduced or denied) will be sent home with your student(s).  An application cannot be approved unless it has been completed accurately.  Please follow directions carefully. 

Do I need to apply every year?    

Yes, you need to fill out an application every year.

Do I need to fill out a paper application if I fill out an on-line application?   

No.   Do not fill out both a paper and an on-line application as this will delay the processing of your benefits.

Do I need to fill out an application for every child?

No, please fill out only one application for your family.   

Where do I send my completed application?   

Please have your student give the completed application to the cafe manager at the school or you can send it through US Mail to:  Food and Nutrition Services, 6975 Cobb International Boulevard, Kennesaw, GA 30152.

What if I need to fill out an application in another language besides English or Spanish?
