The FCPS Food and Nutrition Services Department strongly encourages parents to complete a Meal Benefits Application to determine whether students qualify for free or reduced-price meals at school. Student achievement improves when students receive nutritious meals.
Free breakfasts may be served when there is a demonstrated need schoolwide. This means that completing the application may help your school!
Eligibility for free or reduced-price school meals often changes year to year. FCPS posts the U.S. Department of Agriculture Income Eligibility Guidelines here. The best way to find out if your child qualifies is to apply.
Application is easy, and there are staff ready to assist anyone who has a question.
Please complete the application online here:
All schools have paper applications if you prefer to complete the form that way instead of online.

P.S. This message is going to all FCPS parents. If you have already completed a Meal Benefits Application this school year, thank you! Only one application is required per family.
