Program Description

The School Breakfast Program (SBP) provides funding that makes it possible for schools to offer a nutritious breakfast to students each day. The goal of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is to protect the health and well-being of the nation’s children by providing nutritious school meals every day. NSLP provides funding that makes it possible for schools to offer a nutritious school lunch.

Schools receive Federal funds for each breakfast and each lunch served, provided that the meal meets established nutrition standards. The Federal government and the state of Michigan provide additional funds to schools for each meal served to children who qualify, because of family income, for free or reduced-price meals.

Program Requirements

Children qualify to receive free or low-cost meals while they attend school (high school and under) if their families’ household incomes meet the current income eligibility guidelines. Children who participate in certain other programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and children who are migrant, runaway, foster, or homeless are automatically eligible for free meals.

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)
1 $22,459
2 $30,451
3 $38,443
4 $46,435
5 $54,427
6 $62,419
7 $70,411
8 $78,403

*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.

Application Process

To apply for free or reduced price meals, contact your child’s school. A listing of Michigan’s schools can be found on the Entity Geographical Search page.
