Free and Reduced Meal Application

Due to changes at the federal level, households will be charged the free, reduced, or paid rate for school meals starting with summer school 2022.

All households, but especially those with children attending summer school, are strongly encouraged to complete a meal benefit application as soon as possible to see if they qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Applications can be completed online here. The online application process is quick and easy, and the application can be translated into multiple languages. Alternatively, families can download the paper application and submit it to the School Nutrition Office in person at 1021 Great Bridge Blvd., via fax at 757-547-0916, or via email to School Nutrition

Students attending summer school who do not have a meal application approved for free or reduced-price meals will be charged the full paid rate if they eat school meals. Student meal payment accounts can be set up at

The meal application will be unavailable from June 30th-July 7th.

For any other questions, concerns, or assistance with completing the Free and Reduced Meal Benefit Application, please call the Department of School Nutrition Services at 757.547.1470 or send us an email.
