Online Application for Free Meals
Your child may be eligible for free meals. This federally funded program is completely confidential and was created to ensure children from households that meet federal income guidelines have access to nutritious meals while at school. A new application must be completed each year and only forms for the current school year are accepted. Children receiving free meal benefits are never identified to other students or adults.
The 2023-24 application for free and reduced-priced meals is now available. There are two options to complete an application for free meals, either online or with a paper application.
Families are encouraged to apply online through Linq Connect. Paper applications are also available at all school offices and a print-friendly application may also be downloaded and completed.

In addition to the federal meal benefits, the Oregon State legislature recently expanded the amount you can make and qualify for meals at no charge. Students who do not qualify for the federal free or reduced meal benefit but whose household income falls between 186% - 300% of the federal poverty rate, will now also qualify for free school meals.
