The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day.
All children in households receiving benefits from Utah Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or Utah Family Employment Program (FEP) can get free meals regardless of your income. Also, your children can get free meals if your household's gross income is within the free limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines.
The application process for free/reduced meal benefits has changed this year. The district WILL NOT be mailing applications to households this year. The online process is the only way to get applications approved.
