Free & Reduced Meals Information

SSISD Elementary & Middle School Students Eat FREE  for SY 2020-2021

 

 

High School Students will need to fill out Free & Reduced Application to see if they qualify.

 

 

Applications for free and reduced meals:

Applications with a letter to parents or guardians concerning free and reduced price meals are sent out in enrollment packets to students enrolled in San Saba ISD. To apply for free or reduced price meals, households should complete the application and return it to the school or the food service department. Only one form is needed for each family regardless of the number of children in each household. Additional forms are available in the offices of each campus and cafeteria.  We encourage you to fill out the meal applications.  Spanish versions are available upon request. Information provided on the application will be used to determine eligibility and may be verified during the academic year by the school or other program officials. Once your child has been approved for free or reduced meals, they will remain eligible for the entire school year and the first 30 days of the following year or until a new application is processed.  We will work diligently to process your application as quickly as possible.  For immediate processing, the Child Nutrition Service Department recommends that Parents hand deliver the completed application to the SSISD Cafeteria.

 

Applications are available at the Administration Office, 808 W Wallace St, All Campus Offices, & the High School Cafeteria. If you need any assistance please call the High School Cafeteria 325-372-5083.

 

Note:

Until the Free & Reduced Applications are approved in the Child Nutrition Office, parents are responsible for any charges that occur during the application review process regardless of eligibility status (Foster, SNAP, TANF or Income).   The length of time needed to approve or disapprove an application by the Child Nutrition Office varies from 1-10 working days, depending on the time of year.

For more information on the 10 day processing policy please visit www.squaremeals.org  or read below

According to the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) Administrators' Reference Manual (ARM) Section 4.17  "Applications should be reviewed and an eligibility determination made within 10 operating days of receipt of the application.  For new participants who do not have previously approved applications on file from the previous year, applications should be processed immediately whenever possible."
