Free and Reduced Lunch Information Page
Families that have children attending a public school district can apply online for free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program.
Each student will receive an application for free and reduced price meals at the beginning of the school year. You may also apply at any point throughout the school year if you experience a loss of income and/or an increase in household size.
You must turn in an application every year to continue receiving free and reduced meal benefits.
If you are applying for free or reduced price meals for the first time, you are responsible for the cost of all meal purchases until your application is approved. Paper applications may be obtained from your child's school or you may click on the file located at the bottom of this page to download a copy to complete. Completed forms should be returned to the address below. You may also apply online at the COMPASS website: www.compass.state.pa.us If you apply online, it is not necessary to complete a paper application.
Please remember: If you are applying for free or reduced price meals for the first time, you are responsible for the cost of all meal purchases until your application is approved
