Free and Reduced Price Meals
While the USDA is no longer providing free meals to all students, your children may be eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals. Families are encouraged to submit a meal application that schools will use to determine a child’s eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. All families are encouraged to submit an application anytime during the school year if your child is not attending a CEP campus. A new application must be submitted each school year. Applying for this benefit is easy and confidential using our online application at SchoolCafe.com.
Paper applications will be available at your child's school in August or at the School Nutrition Office, 3623 Highpoint Street, San Antonio, TX 78217 or 210-356-9113.
All applicants will be advised of their approval status by mail. Processing may take up to 10 days during the first few weeks of school.
Note: It is not necessary to complete a paper application if you apply online. Please help us expedite application processing by submitting only one application for your household.
