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