Apply Now For Free and Reduced Lunch
Posted on 08/01/2019

Applications for Free or Reduced-Price Meals during the 2019-2020 school year are being accepted by the School District of Palm Beach County. 


Applications can be submitted online by clicking here, or are available by visiting the main office of a school. Eligibility for Free or Reduced-Price Meals is based on household size and income as outlined in the tables below. 


Once income applications are approved, meal benefits are in effect for the remainder of the school year, unless they are selected for verification and the parent/guardian does not verify the information contained in the application. You do not need to notify the School Food Service Department if your income increases unless the application was selected for verification. If the household income is reduced, you may reapply.


Only one application is required per household to cover all students attending school. Breakfast is always free to all students attending Palm Beach County schools. Reduced lunch costs .40 cents. Regular lunch prices are $2.05 for elementary students and $2.30 for middle and high school students.
