If you are Denied

After receiving and reviewing the Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals, it is necessary to deny your household meal benefits for the following reason:

–Income is over the amount allowed by eligibility guidelines.

If missing information is indicated as a reason for denial, please provide the information to Child Nutrition Services. If you have questions, please call: Joe Stoiber , Food Service Coordinator, 333-6878

You may reapply for benefits at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now but have a decrease in household income, become unemployed, or have an increase in household size, fill out an application at that time. Applications are available at each school and the Central Kitchen.

If you do not agree with this decision, you may discuss it with the school official and you have a right to a fair hearing. This can be done by calling or writing the following official: Cass Pond , Business Manager, 333-6572.

We appreciate your support and hope your child(ren) will continue to participate in the meal program.
