Free and Reduced Priced Meals
Free and reduced-price lunches are available to students unable to pay the full price of meals according to criteria based on household size and income. Free and reduced price meal applications are mailed to all households annually. If you do not receive an application in the mail or if you experience an income or household size change, an application is available on the link below, at your school, or contact Food and Nutrition Services at 610-240-1955 or 610-240-1956. Families who earn less than 130 percent of the poverty level are eligible for free meals and those with incomes between 130 and 185 percent of poverty level qualify for reduced price meals. The prices for paid breakfast and lunch are determined by the School Board and the price of reduced price meals are established by the federal government. Reduced price lunch is currently $.40 and reduced price breakfast is $.30 cents.
