Eligible Families Encouraged to Apply for Free/Reduced Meals


Public schools play a vital role in children’s health by providing free and reduced-price meals to students in need.  All Snoqualmie Valley schools participate in the National School Lunch & Breakfast programs in which families may qualify for complete or partial meal subsidies.


Families must fill out a new free/reduced-price meal application every school year, to be eligible.  Last year’s application will be valid through October 10.  Please submit the 2018-19 Free and Reduced Price Meal application as soon as possible. 


Please note, too, that parents may complete a new application at any time throughout the school year, should circumstances make their family eligible for assistance later in the year.


To learn if your family qualifies for assistance, check the 2018-19 Income Guidelines for the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Child Nutrition Program.  


Some children automatically qualify for free meal benefits, including children in foster care, homeless and migrant students, and households taking part in the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP).  


The application process is simple and confidential. Families can complete the application online through Family Access, download a 2018-19 application from the district website, or request a hard copy application from any school or the district office. Visit the Food Services webpage for instructions.
