Now Posted: 2017-2018 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals - Wisconsin version
IMPORTANT: 2017-2018 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals
The Wisconsin version of the USDA school year (SY) 2017-2018 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals has been posted to the Department of Public Instruction Free and Reduced Meal Application and Eligibility webpage.
School Food Authorities (SFAs) are required to distribute a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application, Instructions/How to Apply and Parent/Guardian Information letter/FAQ to all households in the district on or about the beginning of the school year but not before July 1, 2017:
Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application (Spanish and Hmong Coming Soon!)
Instructions/How to Apply (Spanish and Hmong Coming Soon!)
Parent/Guardian Information Letter/Frequently Asked Questions (Spanish and Hmong Coming Soon!)
The Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application above includes language so that it can be utilized in Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools and non-CEP schools. We have also provided a version that does not include CEP language if your district does not participate in CEP, and you feel it would be less confusing to households.
Application with CEP language removed (Spanish and Hmong Coming Soon!)
Please note that there are two areas on the application that need to be changed before printing and distributing to households:
1) If you have a link to Online Application, you can insert the text at the top or you can type Not Applicable, and
2) On STEP 4, be sure to include where the application should be returned.
To make other changes to the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application, please send an email describing the edits to firstname.lastname@example.org. After reviewing the request, we will send you an unprotected version of the application. If application materials are needed in languages other than Spanish or Hmong, please visit the USDA FNS Translated Applications web page or contact the DPI School Nutrition Team at 608-267-9228.
