Program Description

The School Breakfast and Lunch Program provides funding that makes it possible for schools to offer a nutritious school breakfast and lunch. Schools receive Federal funds for each breakfast served, provided that the meal meets established nutrition standards. Additional funds are provided to schools for each meal served to children who qualify because of family income, for free or reduced-price meals. The program is open to all children up to the age of 21 who are enrolled in public and participating private nonprofit schools and residential child care institutions.

Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Maryland and a parent or primary caregiver responsible for a child(ren) who attends school (high school or under).

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)

*For households with more than eight people, add $7,992 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.
