Parents whose family income falls within specified guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture should apply for free or reduced price meals for their students. See if you qualify here.Applications are sent home at the beginning of the school year or are available at each school, the Everett Public Schools office, or by clicking on the link below. All information provided is kept confidential. Please return applications to your student's school kitchen or the Food & Nutrition office.
- Eligible Students may receive Free Meals (No Charge) or Reduced Price ($0.40). Breakfast is free to students who qualify as free or reduced.
- Applications are accepted all year long.
- Turning in an application does not automatically qualify a child. We do our best to approve them as soon as they are received. Families will be notified by the district when the application has been processed via phone or mail. Until officially approved by the child nutrition office the family is responsible for any student food purchases accrued.
- To qualify for these programs a guardian must fill out an application every calendar year and submit it to the school or Food & Nutrition Office.
- Applications must be completed in full and signed by an adult household member. Any applications not completed in full will not be processed and will be mailed to the address on file.
