Good Food and a Good Value

How do you apply for free and reduced-price meals?

Manage Your Child’s Meals

Our School Nutrition Program is self-supporting and receives no local tax dollars. The financial health of our program depends on parents keeping accounts up to date. We encourage parents to pre-pay to ensure their child’s account always has funds to cover meals. You can pre-pay by the week, by the month, or for the entire year.

 

With MyPaymentsPlus you can make payments directly to your child’s account using the Internet.

  • If you send a check, please write your child’s full name and account number in the memo area of the check.
  • If you send cash, place the cash in a sealed envelope and write your child’s full name, Student ID number, and the amount of cash sent on the front of the envelope.
  • If you are sending money in for more than one child, include the information for each child.

Kindergarten Sibling Form 

If you have children currently receiving free or reduced-price meals in a Gwinnett County school, your kindergartner may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals for the first 30 days of school while your child’s application is processed. Please list the names of siblings currently receiving free or reduced-price meals by filling out the Kindergarten Sibling Form
