Apply for Free or Reduced-Price Lunch

Child Getting Lunch
Many families in Groveport Madison Schools qualify for their children to receive free or reduced-price lunches through the National School Lunch Program. Qualified students can receive free or reduced-price lunches daily.

Qualified students can receive free or reduced-price lunch daily (the District already provides free breakfast to all students), and applications may be made at any time of the year as circumstances dictate.

Families should complete an online application through their PaySchools account to be considered. The information provided is confidential and can only be used to determine your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-price meals through the Federal Lunch Program.  In addition, some school fees are waived for students qualifying for free or reduced-price meals.

Online applications are processed very quickly, with eligibility generally determined in less than 48 hours. Paper applications are also available online or at our schools, but it may take six days or more to process paper applications. Guidelines for eligibility in the program are determined annually. You can learn more about the eligibility guidelines.
