Free and Reduced Meal Applications for Chemawa Students
Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form" The forms are available in the Chemawa School Office and from Mrs. Ventura, our Cafeteria manager. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
Families only have to complete ONE application. All children will be covered under that one application even if they are at different schools. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household incomes. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses – DO NOT INCLUDE FOSTER CHILDREN. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
Foster Children - In certain cases, foster children are eligible for free and reduced-price meals regardless of your income. If you have foster children living with you and you want to apply for them, please contact RUSD Nutrition Services above.
