Free and reduced-priced meal applications



For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. However, the extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year.  Therefore, families who are interested, must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch for the 2022-23 school year.  Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application ten days prior to the first day of the 2022-23 school year. The online application can be found here: https://www.fcps.edu/frm

Students approved for Free and Reduced-Price Meals may qualify for additional benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes by completing Section 4 of the application or the Consent to Share Information form. Schools also benefit from funding opportunities based on Free and Reduced Price Meal application numbers.
