You can go to the following website to get an application for Free and Reduced Lunches:  https://dese.mo.gov/financial-admin-services/food-nutrition-services/free-and-reduced-price-information

If our district has at least 40% of the student population that qualifies by Direct Certification, we may be able to get free meals for all students.  Direct Certification means that children who are from families currently approved for SNAP, TANF or Foster can be automatically approved for free meals at schools under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.  To find out how to appliy for the Food Stamp Program/SNAP or other assistance benefits, contact your local assistance office or call 1-855-373-4636.
