Dear Parents/ Guardians
Due to the federal USDA waiver expiring on June 30, 2022, the Lamar school district will no longer be providing free meals for all students. They will be based on the applications for free and reduced meals. Any additional meals or milks will be an additional cost even if the student is on free or reduced meals. We will not stop them from getting their regular meals, but after they have reached their limit we will stop the additional items from being taken. There are signs posted in each cafeteria stating that everyone will be charged for any additional meals and milks that they select/purchase. Please fill out a free and reduce meals application at your earliest convenience.

Meal Application Requirements
The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do not submit all needed information, we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the primary wage earner or other adult household member who signs the application. The social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) case number or other SNAP identifier for your child or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We may share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
