Free and Reduced-Price Meals

Free and Reduced Lunch Application
Parent Letter

Nationwide waivers provided flexibilities to help millions of children receive free meals at school during the COVID-19 pandemic.   These waivers have ended and the school food program will be returning to normal rules that were in place before COVID-19 for the 2022-23 school year. This will require you to complete and submit a free/reduced meal application (linked above) to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals at school for the 2022-23 school year. Paid meal pricing will be $1.00 for breakfast, $2.00 for Pre-K through 8th grade lunch, and $2.50 for 9-12 lunch.

Meal Shaming Procedures

The goal of the Germantown Central School District is to provide students access to nutritious meals each school day. To ensure that a student whose parent/guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed or treated differently than a student whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal fees, we follow meal shaming procedures.

Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the President and Congress created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households up to $30/month (or $75/month for households living on Tribal lands) toward their internet bills, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.  

All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. 

Households are also independently eligible if:

(1) their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or

(2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.

To further lower costs, the Biden-Harris Administration secured commitments from internet service providers across the country to offer high-speed plans that are fully covered by the ACP. As a result, millions of working families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime.

Families can check their eligibility, sign up, and find fully covered plans at GetInternet.gov(link is external) (mobile-accessible and available in Spanish) or by calling 877-384-2575.
