Free and Reduced Lunch – Families that meet the federal guidelines are entitled to free or reduced lunch. To receive assistance, the Free and Reduced Lunch form must be completed and returned to the District Office. The form can not be completed prior to July 17th, and must include financial information for July on the District 205 registration website or in the York Principals’ Office.

Families that receive the Direct Certification and Categorically eligibile letter during the week of July 20th stating their child is free will not need to fill out the free application.  They should receive a letter for each child in their family and if they do not please call Food Services so we can make sure all family members are included.  Please keep this letter as you may need for other programs and benefits (Comcast, Park District etc)
