Free & Reduced Meal Program

What is the Free and Reduced Meal Program?

The National School Lunch/Breakfast Program is a federally subsidized program that is designed to help eligible children receive complete, nutritious meals at reduced or no cost. Families that qualify for free or reduced priced meals can confidentially participate in both the USDA Lunch and Breakfast Programs at their schools.

Participate in the Free/Reduced Meals Program!

The Green Bay Area Public School District announces its policy for children unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program or milk for split-session students served under the Special Milk Program. Household applications are required to receive free or reduced price meals at the following site(s): Aldo Leopold, East High, Edison Middle, John Dewey Academy, King, Langlade, Leonardo da Vinci, Lombardi Middle, MacArthur, Martin, McAuliffe, NEW School of Innovation, Preble High, Red Smith K-8, Southwest High, Webster, Wequiock, and Wilder.

All students enrolled at the following school(s) may participate in the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program at no charge: Baird, Beaumont, Chappell, Danz, Doty, Eisenhower, Elmore, Fort Howard, Franklin Middle, Head Start Learning Center, Howe, Jackson, Keller, Kennedy, Lincoln, Minoka-Hill Alternative, Nicolet, Sullivan, Tank, Washington Middle, and West High. USDA Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications are not required to receive free meals at the CEP school(s). However, applications may be distributed by the school to collect household income data for other programs that require this information and support educational funding. 

Applications for free or reduced meal benefits must be completed annually.

How do I get an application?

Free & Reduced Meal Benefit Applications are mailed to qualifying households in the Green Bay Area Public School District each August. Please complete the confidential application if you feel your household meets the criteria. If you have received a pink letter in the mail indicating you have qualified for free meals through State benefits, do not complete the application. Please read the letter that was sent to you for instructions. Please see the "What if my child was directly certified?" question for additional information. School Fees questions can be submitted to the Accounting Department.  Meal applications are also available online and at all Green Bay Public Schools offices, cafeterias, and the Food Service Center. 

A new application must be filled out for each household each year.

Click the links below for a printable application in English or Spanish. Application packets will be delivered to homes in August and available during registration/welcome back events at all schools. Applications will be accepted for the new school year after July 1st when the USDA and DPI make the new application and criteria available. Families are unable to pre-enroll in the free or reduced meal benefit program.
