Apply for Free and Reduced Price Meals

Did you know your child might be eligible to receive free benefits and services?  By completing the Free & Reduced Price Meal application your child may qualify for free or reduced price school meals and other benefits including reduced school fees. Children who eat healthy, nutritious meals daily are more likely to succeed in the classroom.  HISD offers healthy breakfast, lunch, and afterschool snacks every school day.

 So here’s what to do!

 1.  Complete an online meal application or pick up an application from your campus and return it to your school’s office as soon as possible.  After processing the application, you will be notified by mail of your child’s eligibility for free or reduced price school meals. 

 Reminder: You must reapply for school meal benefits every year even if your child received them the previous school year.

 2.  If your child is approved for free or reduced meals, please contact your school to learn more about other possible benefits including:

  • after school tutorials 
  • supplemental educational materials
  • college preparatory tours
  • fee waivers for the college tests (ACT & SAT) 
  • fee waivers for university entrance exams and applications
  • college scholarships and financial aid
