Your child(ren) may qualify for free or for reduced-price meals.You can go online to www.mealapps.houstonisd.org to submit an application or you can complete a paper application at your child's school. Online applications are processed quicker and will ensure that your child's benefits begin sooner. You only need to complete one application even if your children attend different schools.
If your child has a disability, as determined by a doctor, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by the doctor. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. Please note, however, that the school is not required to make a substitution for a food allergy unless it meets the definition of disability. Please call your child's school for further information.
