Reduced Price Meal Benefits

If your child was eligible to receive free or reduced-price meal benefits during the 2022-2023 school year, they are still receiving those benefits as part of the USDA 30-day eligibility carryover allowance. Eligibility carryover allows children to maintain their prior school year eligibility status for up to 30 operating days into the next school year or until a new eligibility determination is made; whichever comes first.

This carryover will end September 20, 2023. If you believe your child(ren) should continue to receive meal benefits, please complete a meal benefit application and return it to the food service office by September 20, 2023 to avoid paid lunch charges. Applications can be accessed by contacting your school’s main office or visiting the online portal at https://www.wcsc.k12.in.us/wcsc/info/food-services-new.

The paid meal prices are as follows: $1.35 for elementary and $2.45 for middle/high school for breakfast and $2.45 for elementary and $3.00 for middle/high school lunch. If an income application is not approved by September 20, 2023 your child(ren) will be changed to paid status and charged the amounts listed above.

If you have questions regarding your child’s eligibility status please contact: Rebecca Shepperd, Director of Food Services at 219.567.9119 x1542.

Thank you
Rebecca Shepperd
Director of Food Services
