What is SNAP?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is a federal program that offers nutrition assistance benefits to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families. On a monthly basis, SNAP participants receive a fixed quantity of SNAP benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Card. The SNAP EBT card can be used like a debit card to purchase healthy food at authorized area retail stores and supermarkets

  • Please be sure to complete a School Lunch Application prior to the
    beginning of each school year if you have not received an approval
    letter in July or August indicating that your child has been Directly
    Certified to receive Free/Reduced meals by the State. You only need
    to submit one application for all children.


  • If one or more of your children are not listed on a Direct Certification
    Letter or you have other questions relating to Free/Reduced meals,
    please call the School Nutrition Office at 978-722-6010
