Free and reduced-price meal application deadline
Families that qualify for the free and reduced-price meal services should be sure to finish their application by Oct. 31.
Our district participates in the National School Breakfast/Lunch program and provides free and reduced-price meals to students who qualify based on federal government guidelines. While meals are free for all students at this time, an application for Free & Reduced meals is still needed. The recently added flexibility and funding offered by the USDA to extend the free meal offer could end at any time. You may qualify if you:
- Are special program recipients
- Have foster, homeless, runaway, or migrant children
- Are eligible due to household income
If you believe that your household is eligible for Free or Reduced-priced meal, be sure to be counted by completing the application at mealapp.garlandisd.net.
Learn more about this program on the Free and reduced-price meals page.
Note: Students at CEP schools do not have to submit free and reduced-price meal applications. However, parents may still need to submit applications for their other child(ren).
