Friendswood ISD announces standards for school-lunch program
The Friendswood Independent School District announces its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program.
Anyone interested may visit the food service office to view a copy of the policy. Eligibility is based on household size and income. Children from households whose income is at or below the eligibility levels can receive free and reduced-price meals. Foster children under welfare agencies may also be eligible for benefits, regardless of their household's income.
Applications are available at the principal’s office in each school. To apply, households must fill out the application and return it to the school any time during the school year. School officials may verify applications at any time during the school year. For school officials to determine eligibility, households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly food stamps)/ Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) only have to list their child’s name and the SNAP or TANF case number. An adult household member must sign the application.
Households that do not list a SNAP or TANF case number must list the names of all household members, the amount and source of income received by each, and the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. If the adult who signs the application does not have a social security number, he or she must write “none” or “no number.” The application must be signed by an adult household member.
