Families may apply for free and reduced-price meals with an online application in English or Spanish that walks them through the process.

Only one application is needed per family, even when children attend different APS schools. Applications need to be filled out every year. Students who attend any of the nearly 100 APS schools that qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision don't need to fill out an application. All students at these schools can get breakfast and lunch for free.

Paper applications also are available at schools that don't qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision.
