Meal Applications


Now Accepting New Applications


2020-2021 School Year


Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits EXPIRE each school year!


New meal applications MUST be turned in at the start of each new school year.

Applications can be filled out ONLINE or on PAPER

Please complete and submit a new application for the 2020-2021 School Year before the first day of school.  

All Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits EXPIRE each year.  To continue or renew your benefit status, Nutrition Services must receive, process, and approve a Meal Application for the current school year. 

Meal Benefits start the DAY the application is APPROVED and cannot be back-dated to cover meals charged once benefits have expired.  Parents/Guardians are responsible to PAY FULL PRICE for meals charged and/or debt incurred by students: when meal benefits expire, during gaps in benefits due to no current application and if the application is denied.  If your application is denied, you may re-apply at any time if you have a change in income or household situation.

All information on your application is confidential and will only be used for the meal program.  In the cafeterias all students' accounts look identical, so no one can tell what the meal benefit status is.  We respect the privacy of our customers.  

Applications are being accepted during the summer months.

Our Nutrition Service Staff is available for assistance or questions.

Call us at (208) 667-7469 Monday-Friday, 7 AM to 3 PM.

We are located at 1242 E Best Ave., Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814.
