Indiana Department of Education announces income eligibility guidelines

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Education has announced income eligibility guidelines for the free and reduced-price school meals and milk programs.

The National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk programs were created to support students unable to pay the full price for their meals or milk.

Children from households that meet federal guidelines are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and milk.  

Children enrolled in the Head Start/Even Start programs, Migrant Education Program, or considered homeless, or runaway by the school district’s migrant/homeless liaison, should contact the school for assistance in receiving benefits.
