Students may receive free meals if their families receive food stamps or Families First benefits; the household income is at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty level; or they are in foster care.

Students may receive reduced-price meals if their household income is at or below 185 percent of the federal poverty level.

Any child meeting the guidelines, regardless of United States citizenship, is eligible for the USDA's meals program. Families with multiple children need only submit one application.
