Discounted Lunch Prices Available to Qualifying Families

Laveen schools serve free or reduced-price lunches to families that qualify based on income requirements.

Families must reapply annually. If you qualified last year your eligibility expires September 17. Please reapply at EZMealApp.com or complete a paper application at your school’s front office or cafeteria.  All families are encouraged to apply. Applications are processed year round and are kept confidential.

Families that meet federal income levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Lunches are currently priced at $2.30; the reduced price is $.40. Breakfast is served free to all students, regardless of eligibility, before school each day.

In addition to receiving a discount on meal prices, completed applications provide additional funds to the district in the form of grant money. Funding for prevention programs, parent training, and interventions for students in reading and math is often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced–price lunch.
