Applying for Schweinfurt schools' free/reduced school lunch program
August 14, 2013
SCHWEINFURT, Germany (Aug. 14, 2013) -- Many families in the Schweinfurt community may qualify for their children to receive free or reduced-price meals while at school. The eligibility for this program is based on household income and family size.
Even if families have qualified for the Free/Reduced School Lunch Program during prior school years, the eligibility criteria changes annually, so families need to reapply each school year. Families with children in Sure Start will automatically qualify for Free School Lunches; however, these families still need to complete the Free/Reduced School Lunch Program application.
Applications can be picked up at Schweinfurt's Army Community Service. In order for applications to be complete, families must provide the following:
• Completed Free/Reduced School Lunch application form available at ACS (AE Form 352-1A)
• PCS orders listing the names of all family members
• Copy of sponsor's most recent end of month Leave and Earnings Statement (LES)
• If applicable, copy of documentation listing any additional income the family may receive (spouse income, alimony, child support, kindergeld, etc.).
Families can complete a Free/Reduced School Lunch Program application at any time. Families will be notified about whether or not they qualify for the Free/Reduced School Lunch Program via a letter that is sent to their CMR mailbox. If you have questions about the Free/Reduced School Lunch Program application, call ACS at 09721-96-6933 or DSN 354-6933.
