Income Eligibility Guidelines

FOR FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEALS

Los Lunas Schools today announced its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program.  Each school, the Central Office and the Student Nutrition Office have a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.

The household size and income criteria identified below will be used to determine eligibility for free, reduced-price, or full-price meal benefits.  Children from households whose income is at or below the levels shown here are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.  Children who receive  Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program  (SNAP), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Assistance, benefits are automatically eligible for free meals regardless of the income of the household in which they reside.  Eligibility for a foster child is based on a separate application and solely on the amount of the child's “personal use” income.
