  • The school receives a significant amount of funding for completion of these forms.  This funding is used to support the academic program at Meadow Park.  As general funding declines, Title I monies are becoming our only source of funding for important academic services.
  • Even if a family is unsure about their ability to qualify, they should apply.  Nutrition Services will review their application and determine eligibility.  Many parents think that they do not qualify when, if fact, they do meet the requirements.
  • Please apply even if your child/children will not receive school lunch every day. 
  • Kindergarten families may also apply.
  • Every year, a new form needs to be submitted.  There is no carryover.
