  • Free & Reduced Meal Benefits

    Students in our district who qualified for meal benefits at the end of last school year may use those same benefits for the first 30 days of this school year or until a new application is processed, whichever comes first.  All information is strictly confidential and confined to only those who need to know.  All students, regardless of meal status, go through the meal lines the same way and have access to the same meals.


    Students qualifying for free meals may get one breakfast and one lunch at no charge each school day.  Students qualifying for reduced meals may get one breakfast at no charge and one lunch for only $.40 each school day.  Additional items or extra milk or extra juice is regular price for everyone.


    A current meal application may be completed any time during the school year. If your family did not qualify at the beginning of school and income drops or household size increases, please complete a current application as you may now qualify.  Example:  decreased work hours such as layoffs, birth of another child, or other people move in with you.


    During the first two weeks of school applications may take up to 10 days after receipt to process.  Meanwhile, if you have any questions or need assistance completing an application, please contact the Food Service Office at 735-3753 or ruth.melvin@republicschools.org or carrie.vasquez@republicschools.org.
