School Meals Application
All children in households receiving benefits from Food Assistance Program (FAP), Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) or Family Independence Program (FIP), are eligible for free meals.
FILL OUT A NEW APPLICATION EACH SCHOOL YEAR!
For this 2021-2022 school year under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Seamless Summer Option (SSO) all students will be able to eat school breakfast and lunch at NO COST/$0 (FREE), however, everyone must still complete and return a School Meals Application.
Students and families who qualified for free or reduced price meals last school year (2020-2021) MUST fill out a new application for this school year (2021-2022). The free or reduced benefits from last year will possibly only be carried-over until Wednesday, October 13, 2021. After that, if no new application is on file, meals will potentially begin to be charged at full price if/when we return to the normal NSLP. The school will not send a reminder or a notice of expired eligibility. Applications will be sent home with each student on the first day of school. They can also be picked up at each school office or downloaded and printed from the district website: www.nice.k12.mi.us. To avoid an interruption of benefits, don’t forget to re-apply for free or reduced price meals each school year!
