Free and Reduced Price Meals
Students may qualify for free or reduced price meals based on household size and income. They may also qualify if they are receiving Food Supplement Program or Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) benefits.
Families may apply for meal benefits by completing an Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals for the current school year. An application is sent home with students at the beginning of the school year. Blank applications may also be picked up at any MCPS school. All students in the family should be listed on one application only. If students received meal benefits last year, a new application must be submitted this year.
Return completed applications to any MCPS school or the Division of Food and Nutrition Services in person or by U.S. mail.

Students may also apply for meal benefits at any time during the school year.
