Free Meals in School Year 21-22
Axtell ISD announced its policy that this school year, free meals will be offered every day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the USDA issued guidance that allow schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the free or reduced application will be required to be filled out for all junior high and high school students to determine next school year eligibility. Elementary students will be required to fill social economic form for determination of next school year.
Also at the high school, the snack bar will not be included in the free lunch program students will still be required to pay for any purchases they make at the snack bar.
While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year , the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year.
