2022-2023 Lunches Return to Free, Reduced, or Paying Status
The USDA allowed schools to offer free meals to all students for two years during the pandemic; but at this time, Congress has not approved extending this benefit for the 2022-2023 school year. Students will be charged the full price for their school lunches. Therefore, student families that are eligible for free or reduced-price meals must apply and qualify in order to receive them. All other students will be charged the full price for their school meals.
Apply to receive free or reduced-price meals online here; or complete and return the paper application for Free & Reduced Price Meals that will be provided to every student in the District during the first week of school.
USDA has authorized a waiver for the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), Division of Food and Nutrition (DFN), to provide schools with an option for a 30-day carryover into the 2022-23 School Year (SY). Families who were qualified for Free, Reduced, or Directly Certified in the following school years will have the first 30 days of in-session school days (until Friday, Oct. 7, 2022) to submit a new application for Free & Reduced Price Meals.
- School Year 2021-2022
- School Year 2020-2021
- School Year 2019-2020
Families that qualify for the 30-day carryover period will be notified via Skyward email.
Families applying for free or reduced-price meals should only complete one application, whether that is done online or through a paper submission. Families who are currently receiving SNAP, TANF or specific MA do not need to submit an application as they are Directly Certified for free meals by the state.

Total meal packages for five free breakfast meals and five lunch meals will vary by student grade level and will range between $13.75 – 14.75 per week.
