The Kings Local Food Service Department is a member of the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. With this program, services for a free or reduced meal program are available.
 
Free or Reduced-priced meals for breakfast and lunch are available to students who qualify and meet the eligibility guidelines. Students who qualified last school year automatically qualify for the first 30 days of the school year.  However, a new application must be completed for the 2018-2019 school year within 30 days from the start of school to continue the program
 
In order to continue the program past Monday, October 1 for those currently on the program from last school year, the application needs to be sent into school in time to allow processing sending in the application prior to Friday, September 28, 2018. If you have a child that was on the program last year and you now have a newly enrolled student this year (example Kindergartner) a new application needs to be completed before the newly enrolled student can begin the meal program for the 2018-2019 school year.
 
Applications may be obtained by contacting your child's school or you can also access a copy here.
 
Applications are accepted at anytime during the school year for any student, however for those students on the program from last year, in order to extend the program past Friday, September 28, 2018, without interruption, a new application needs to be completed.
