Apply for free or reduced-price meals

  • Apply online for free and reduced-price meals or print out the application and return it to your child's school office:

    Helpful information:

    • In Minnesota, reduced-price lunches are also served at no cost to the household and breakfast is free for all students each day in RPS. 
    • While a full meal is available to students through this program, second entrees, à la carte items or individual milks without a meal purchase require payments and a positive balance in a student’s account.
    • Families can reapply at any point during the school year. If you did not qualify earlier, but your household situation has changed since the beginning of the year, please consider reapplying.
    • Check the status of your application online (allow 24-48 hours for processing).
