Five Flagstaff Unified School District schools will offer free meals to all of their students for the upcoming school year.
Killip Elementary, Kinsey Elementary, Leupp Elementary, Thomas Elementary, and Summit High School fall under the Community Eligibility Provision for the 2018-2019 school year. Students of these schools will receive healthy breakfasts and lunches at no cost; there is no need to submit an application.
Students at all other FUSD schools can also apply for free or reduced-price meals. Qualifications include: belonging to a household whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, belonging to a household that receives public assistance, or if the child is homeless, a migrant, runaway, or foster child.
For a household of three people that has a yearly income of $15,782 or less, school lunches will be free for the child. For a household of three people that has a yearly income of $22,459, the child will qualify for reduced-price lunch. Please see the FEI chart for specific qualifications.
Reduced-price lunches cost 30 cents for breakfast, and 40 cents for lunch. The cost for breakfast with no reductions is $1.75. The cost for lunches without any reductions is $2.90 for elementary schools, and $3 for secondary schools.
