Under the federally funded National School Breakfast and Lunch program, free and reduced price breakfasts and lunches are available to needy families. Applications for Free & Reduced Price Meals are sent home with all children during the first week of school.  Only one application is needed for both the breakfast and lunch program.  Families that believe they are eligible should complete one application per family and return it to the school cafeteria in the morning.  All questions must be completed on the application.  Applications are distributed the first school day or each year, during the school year, it may be obtained from the office.


    During the month of September, only those students who were eligible for Free & Reduced Price breakfasts and lunches last year in H.I.S.D. will be given breakfast or lunch free or reduced while a NEW application is being processed.
