ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- From Aug. 5-8, the Child Nutrition Services program of the St. Lucie County School District is hosting Open House events at various school sites for parents to complete an on-line or paper application for free and reduced meal prices prior to school starting.
Parents must complete an updated application every year, though only one application per family is required, and are encouraged to do so prior to school opening for the 2013-14 school year August 20 so that each student will have an updated meal plan. New students to the district will be on paid status until an application is submitted and processed.
Parents should bring documentation to complete the application, such as their Food Stamp case number, TANF number, SNAP number, or social security number.
For more information, call St. Lucie Public Schools Child Nutrition Services at (772) 429-6190.
