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.
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)|
A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), automatically meets the income eligibility requirement.
To apply for free or reduced price meals, contact your child’s school. A listing of your state’s school systems can be found here:
