How do I know if my student qualifies for free or reduced lunch?
The Free and Reduced Meal Program is a government program that provides free or reduced school meals to students based on household income. Income guidelines can be viewed at the Nebraska Department of Education Nutrition Services Web Site. You only have to fill out one form per family, even if you have more than one child and they attend different schools. These forms need to be filled out at the beginning of each new school year.
