2022-2023 LCISD Meal Information
Federal funding for all students to receive free school meals is no longer available to school districts. This means that students must either pay for school meals or qualify for free or reduced-price school meals for the 2022-23 school year.
School meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are:
Grades PK -5 Lunch $3.00
Grades 6-12 Lunch $3.25
There is a possibility that your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). To find out if the children in your household are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, simply complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online or paper form.
Here is some important information about applying for free and reduced-price meals:
Any family can apply. There is no penalty for families who apply and do not qualify.
Families who have not qualified in the past may qualify this year, as income eligibility qualifications have been adjusted.
The application and free or reduced-price meal status are completely confidential. Teachers, administrators, and fellow students do not have access to this information and will have no way of knowing which children receive free and reduced-price meals.
Children who receive free or reduced-price meals have the same food options as children who do not. There are no “special lunch lines” or different menu items for these students.
Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals may provide access to many additional benefits, including:
Pandemic EBT benefits
Reduced registration fees for AP, SAT, and/or ACT tests
Free or discounted participation fees for activities
Discounted rates associated with college applications
Discounted rates on internet services
To complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals online:
If you have an existing account, select “Login”; if you do not have an existing account, select “Guest Login”
Follow the prompts to complete the application process. (The application will ask for your child’s student ID number, but if you do not know your child’s student ID number, you will be able to look it up using your child’s full name and date of birth.)
If you prefer to complete a paper Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals:
Paper applications are available at any LCISD campus office, the district’s main office, and during fall open houses.
Return your paper application to any LCISD campus office or the district’s main office.
If you have any questions about school meals or the application process for free and reduced-price meals, please contact:
