What is the Free and Reduced Meal (FARMs) Program?

HCPSS participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, which provide families with significant benefits to help save money. Qualification is based on family size and income, and enrollment is confidential. All children in households receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can get free meals regardless of income, and students from some households may be eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals.

The Free and Reduced Meal Program is based on federal eligibility guidelines.
