School Nutrition Benefits for Families Impacted by Federal Shutdown
With the federal shutdown impacting numerous Mainers, the Maine Department of Education wants to remind school districts that applications for free and reduced-price meals may be submitted at any time throughout the school year, even during a federal shutdown. If federal employees impacted by the shutdown would like to apply for school meal benefits for their children, they may so do through their local school district.
To apply – A special application can be downloaded from the Maine Department of Education’s website (linked below) and submitted to your local school’s food service program.
For more information, contact Wendy Ordway, Food & Nutrition Supervisor, MSAD 15 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 657-9331.

SCHOOL MEAL PRICES
(Milk Choices included with every School Meal)
For those who qualify:
Reduced Breakfast – Free
Reduced Lunch – $0.40
Free and Reduced Meal Application
Free and Reduced Meals
All families are encouraged to complete the free and reduced lunch application. An accurate free/reduced count can impact a number of Federal Programs and Grants. Providing your child with this benefit does not burden the lunch program or the district. Actually, it helps support the program. Applications may be submitted anytime during the school year. If you do not qualify at the beginning of the year but experience a loss of job, reduced hours or wages or add members to the household…even temporarily…feel free to submit a new application.
