Apply online NOW so that benefits will be in place when school starts! Families who meet certain federal income standards are eligible for free or reduced-price meal benefits. All children use their MCPS ID number at the register so confidentiality is maintained and no child is overtly identified as receiving free or reduced-price meals. Only one application is needed for all students in a household. A new application must be completed for any family requesting assistance this school year.
The online application is now open for families to submit applications. Please click here to apply. 
Meal benefit eligibility from last school year will remain current only through the first 30 scheduled school days OR until a 2023-2024 application is processed.

Meal prices: Breakfast—$1.30; Lunch— $2.80

Beginning this year, students in Maryland who qualify for reduced-price meals will not be charged for breakfast or lunch meals!
