Applications open for free or reduced school lunches
With a new school year here, now is the time to apply for free or reduced-priced meals.
These funds come from the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, Special Milk and Child and Adult Care Food programs.
A family of four with an income at or below $39,000 can apply for yearly free lunches. That same family with an income at or below $55,500 qualify for a year of reduced lunches.
The application period is open, and materials can be found at the Department of Education website.
