Free & Reduced Meals

The district distributes free and reduced meal applications at the beginning of each school year. However, you may apply any time during the school year.

  • A new application is required each year to see if your household qualifies for free or reduced-price meal benefits.
  • The quickest way to apply is online (link below). Paper applications are also available at all of our schools and the district office.
  • If you received a letter from Nutrition Services in August stating direct certification (approval of meal benefits), then your child has been qualified through the state of Washington and no application is needed. If other children reside in your household and are not listed on the letter, please contact Nutrition Services at 509-558-5417.
