As a reminder, online Free and Reduced Meal applications must be reviewed and approved by the DPI School Nutrition Team each school year and may not be utilized by SFAs until approval is complete. Applications cannot be posted or distributed prior to July 1.
Additionally, SFAs often have the ability to change or customize certain aspects of the application. It is the responsibility of the SFA to ensure that their application and notification letters are set up correctly to comply with the requirements outlined in the Eligibility Manual For School Meals.
