    • Meals can be picked at any school even if it’s not your student’s homeschool.
    • Meals will be distributed based upon eligibility. If your student is a full paying student, meals must be purchased at full price. Breakfast is $1.40 and lunch is $2.75. Students who qualify for free meals and reduced meals will receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.
    • All families are encouraged to fill out a free and reduced meal benefit application. If you require a paper application, you may pick one up at any school building in the county. Paper applications can be dropped off at any school, the Administrative Services Center (900 North East Road, North East), or mailed to the Food & Nutrition office at 900 North East Road North East, MD 21901.
    • If your student received benefits based on an application from last school year you must submit a new application by October 14th. On October 15th, any benefit that has not been renewed will expire and your student will go on full paying status.
