Meal Applications


Henry County Public Schools has been approved for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), available through the USDA, to offer free breakfast and lunch to all elementary and middle school students.  A free and reduced price meal application does not need to be filled out for elementary or middle school students under the CEP. 

Due to the lower levels of identified student percentages at the high schools, we were unable to include them in the CEP group at this time.  The High Schools will still have Provision 2 (Universal Free) Breakfast, but families needing assistance with lunch costs will need to fill out the lunch application.

Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families with high school students who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." The forms can be obtained and returned (completed) to the high school school offices. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your student'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 income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. 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 are categorically eligible for free meal benefits.  Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size. 

Please read the entire "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQ) that is posted with the Meals Application.
