Only one application per family is required but all students and household members should be listed on the application.

A new application must be completed each year, and families may complete an application at any time during the school year. Students who were approved for benefits last year must complete a new application at the beginning of the new school year. Students may eat on last year’s status for either thirty (30) days or until a new application is processed whichever occurs first. Those students who do not have an approved meal application on file will need to pay for meals at the end of the grace period.

If you received a letter that you child is directly certified to receive meals, you do not need to complete an application for meal benefits. However, if your letter does not include the names of all students in the household, please call 910-678-2595 to let us know. 

Students attending CEP schools do not have to submit an application.  To view a list of the 2017-2018 CEP Schools, click here.

An application can be completed anytime during the school year if you feel that your family may qualify. If there is any change in income, job loss, additional household members added, etc., please check to see if your family qualifies for benefits. Parents are responsible for payment for any meal until the application is approved.
