Katy ISD announced its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children eligible under the federal income guidelines for the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. A copy of the policy may be viewed at squaremeals.com.
Children living in households whose income is at or below the federally approved levels, based on family size, may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Transfer students approved for the program from another school district may either complete a Katy ISD application or provide documentation of their eligibility status. Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside.
The Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service Department encourages parents in all eligible households to complete an online application prior to the start of school. The online application can be found at the district website katyisd.org.
A Free and Reduced meal application form and an information letter will also be distributed in the student first day packet. A paper application will not need to be completed if you submitted the 2010-2011 application online. If your child was on the program at the end of the previous school year they are eligible for the same benefit for the first 30 operating days of the new school year, or until a new application is processed. A new application is required each school year.
The Nutrition and Food Service Dept. is located at 5364 Franz Rd. Staff is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., to assist parents complete the application. Bring the names of all members of the households and their gross monthly income. For any questions call the Katy ISD Nutrition Dept. office at 281-396-6240.
Applications are available online, at any district school and at the food service office, and may be submitted any time during the school year as of July 1. The information households provide on the application will be used for the purpose of determining meal eligibility. Application information may be verified by school officials at any time during the school year.
