21-22 Free & Reduced Meal Applications
Posted on 08/05/2021

Hicksville Union Free School District offers nutritious meals every school day, as children need healthy meals to learn. Some children may qualify for free meals or reduced price meals. Beginning July 1, 2019 students in New York State that are approved for reduced price meals will receive breakfast and lunch meals at no charge.

In order to apply for free and reduced price meals for their children, parents must complete one application for the household. The application includes the names of all household members and all household income and is submitted to the school nurse for processing at the building and district levels. Parents will be notified in writing whether or not they are entitled to free or reduced price meals. Applications must be submitted each school year.

Parents with a Direct Certification Letter from the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance may submit the letter in place of the household income information. Once approved for benefits at the time of application, they will be effective for the remainder of the school year.
