Find out if your family qualifies for important benefits

If your family qualifies for free or reduced meals through the Free and Reduced-Price Lunch (FRPL) program, you may be entitled to other benefits.

Benefits may include:

  • Up to $375 per child for summer meals. (A family of three can receive more than $1,000 in P-EBT* support.)
  • Reduced internet fee of $15 through the Emergency Broadband Program (regularly $65).
  • Student Chromebook damage coverage at reduced (or no) cost, available through the district (regularly $25).
  • Free SUNY tuition or reduced FMCC tuition, and other benefits. (Visit “Beyond the Lunchroom” benefits page for details or contact the school counseling office for details: 518-853-4415 x 4235.)

If you already receive Medicaid or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), you will receive P-EBT benefits automatically, but if you do not submit your free and reduced-price lunch application, you might be missing out on additional benefits for your family and your school. Please note: Your family may qualify for Free and Reduced-Price Lunch even if you do not qualify for Medicaid or SNAP.

Be sure to review the benefits and fill out a free and reduced-price meal application if you believe you may qualify. Learn more about how to apply on our Food Services web page.

If you have questions, please contact Food Service Manager, Vicki Palmer at 518-853-4508 ext 4260.
