Free & Reduced Meal Application
This section is for those applying for free and reduced-price meals.
APPLICATIONS MUST BE RENEWED EVERY SCHOOL YEAR
WE WILL BE TAKING NEW APPLICATIONS FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR 2018-19 BEGINNING JULY 13, 2018
You will be notified by mail when the student has qualified.
Please send payment with your student until you have received a letter of notification from
the district office. Full price is charged until the application is processed.
- When a student qualifies for free or reduced meals, this includes breakfast (if your school participates in the breakfast program) and lunch. However, if your child chooses to bring a lunch from home, this does NOT include free milk for a home lunch.
- Use ONE free and reduced price school meals application for all students in your household. Applications are available at the Jordan School District Office, at all schools, on-line using your Skyward login, at local libraries or community fitness centers. You may turn in your application at the district office, mail it to Nutrition Services 7905 S. Redwood Road West Jordan Ut 84088, fax it to 801-567-8768 or at any of your student’s schools. Directions for completing the application online can be found below. If possible, turn the application in early to insure benefits are in place prior to the first day of school. There is an extremely high volume of applications received once school begins which can cause up to a 10-day delay in processing your application. Please remember that you are responsible for full price payment for your student’s meal until the application is processed. You MUST include all people living in your household, related or not, and all income received. Neither you nor your children have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify for free or reduced price meals. You may be selected for verification where you will be required to send proof of information you provided on the application.
- Households receiving WIC may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. Fill out an application to see if you qualify.
- You may apply at any time during the school year if your household size or income changes, or if you begin receiving Food Stamps, FEP, FDPIR or other benefits. You may also update your application by phone at any time during the year if your income decreases or your household size increases.
- Hard copies can be obtained from any school or you may call 801-567-8765 or 801-567-8769 to have one emailed or mailed to you.
- If you have any questions, please contact Julie Dunn at 801-567-8765.
