ISD Free and Reduced-price Meal Policy

Friendswood released a policy on July 26 where free meals and reduced-price meals will be provided during the 2022 to 2023 school year according to a Community Impact article from July 27. They say,

“Friendswood ISD released its policy July 26 for providing free and reduced-price meals during the 2022-23 school year, which includes an increase in the maximum income eligible, according to a district press release.

FISD will begin distributing letters Aug. 1 to households with children in the district regarding benefits and how households can apply if needed. Applications are available online or at 402 Laurel Drive, Friendswood.”

Similarly, Frisco Independent School District also announced its free and reduced-price meal policy according to a Star Local Media article from July 27 which observes,

“Frisco Independent School District has announced its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under current income eligibility guidelines. This school year, students who qualify for reduced price meals will receive meals at no cost. In order to receive the meal free of charge, the purchase must meet the reimbursable meal requirement: Frisco ISD offers five meal components: meat/meat alternate, grains, milk, fruit, and vegetable.

The minimum number of components required is three for a well-balanced, reimbursable meal. A reimbursable meal must include the selection of at least one fruit or one vegetable. Students who select fewer than three components, or who do not choose a fruit or vegetable will be charged for their selections based on a la carte prices. This applies to both breakfast and lunch.”

The letter to the household will be available online here. It contains details on eligibility benefits and actions needed to be taken to apply said benefits.
