Please complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application if you believe you qualify.
Why should I complete an application?
If you feel you qualify, it is critical that households submit a free and reduced-priced meal application as soon as possible to determine a student’s eligibility for this school year and avoid unpaid meal charges when SMART funds at the end 2023-2024 School Year. Also, students who qualify for Free & Reduced Meals may be eligible for other benefits throughout the school year unrelated to food service.
Free & Reduced Meal Applications can be found on the school website by clicking on the following link:
Northwestern Regional School District 7 is in the process of updating the School Meal Charging Policy which will be shared with families once it is approved.
