• Federal Lunch Program
    Did you know your children may qualify for free or reduced priced meals? If your household’s gross income falls at or below the limits on the Federal Income Guidelines, you can enroll them in the Federal Lunch Program. We all know children need healthy meals in order to learn and grow. Not only will your child receive tasty and nutritious food at school every day, but participation in the federal lunch program may also benefit all children in the district. The PA Department of Education utilizes the number of students enrolled in the federal lunch program when awarding grant monies to school districts. All of the children of the District can benefit from grants or special programs if an accurate number is reported. We encourage parents to apply online at http://www.paschoolmeals.com.
