Free / Reduced Meal Application - ONLINE!

  • Your family may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals.

    As a part of the National School Lunch Program, some students may be eligible for a free or reduced-priced lunch.  All families wishing to receive free or reduced meals must complete a new application each school year. If the family received assistance in the previous year, it will continue for the first 30 operating days into the new year. 

    The fastest way to apply for free or reduced-price meals is completing an online application, found at

    Paper applications can take up to 10 days to process. After the application has been processed, the family will receive a notice stating the benefits for which the family is eligible. If a paper application is needed, it can be picked up at any school office, cafeteria or at the Child Nutrition office. You may also print it, HERE.

    If printing an application, the original application may be mailed to the Child Nutrition Office at 612 N. Campbell, Willis, TX 77378 OR sent to your child’s school to be turned into the Child Nutrition Office. You may also email the application to the Child Nutrition Secretary, Mandy Chance, at
