The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District provides free and reduced price meals to students under the National School Lunch Program.
Students from families with income at or below the guidelines listed are eligible for free or reduced price meals and may qualify for other school programs. To be considered for benefits, a Student Programs Application or School Meal/Direct Certification Notification from Public Assistance must be submitted to a school or to the Student Nutrition Services office.
Application forms, instructions and a letter to parents are available at area schools and at the Student Nutrition Services office. Applications also will be distributed to students the first day of school.
Students qualifying for meal benefits at the close of the 2001-02 school year may continue to receive benefits for up to 20 days at the start of the 2002-03 school year while a new application is being processed. All other students must bring a lunch or lunch money.
Please allow a period of up to 10 working days for the Student Nutrition Services office to process the application.
