For more information,please visit Free Meals for All Children.
Free & Reduced Meal Benefits
Even though all students currently are receiving meals free of charge, families who qualify for meal benefits should still complete free and reduced-price meal applications to avoid a lapse in meal benefits once the waiver has ended. Meal applications are not required to receive free meals during the time the waiver is active. If you have questions about free and reduced-price meal applications please contact Sandra McKinzie at email@example.com
We encourage on-line applications because these can usually be approved within 48 hours whereas paper applications can take up to 10 days for approval. The Big Creek website contains all the information and links needed to apply on-line. It also provides information on how to obtain a paper application. The application (on-line and paper) and related information is also available in Spanish. Access the application here.
