The Free and Reduced School Meals program offers reduced or free meals for qualified children. Reduced priced meals are available for $0.30 for breakfast and $0.50 for lunch. Free meals are available to children that meet specific criteria. Families already receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) benefits may be eligible for free meals. Some schools and school districts in Maryland now provide free breakfast and lunch to all students based on a new standard called “community eligibility”. Ask your child’s school if they are implementing the community eligibility option.
