Free and Reduced Price Meals

While all children will automatically receive free meals for the 2021-22 school year, families are still encouraged to apply for the free and reduced price meal program to determine if they qualify for other forms of financial assistance at school.

How do I find out if my student is eligible?

Students may qualify for free or reduced price meals if total household income is at or below the amount of Federal Income Guidelines.  Click here for the 2021-22 income guidelines.

Students in households receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly Food Stamps) or TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) benefits and most foster children can receive free meals regardless of household income. Households receiving WIC, Oregon Health Plan or other governmental assistance may qualify.

When can I apply?

Applications may be submitted anytime during the year. Explore your options and apply today.

How do I apply?

You will need to fill out a free & reduced-price meal application. Download the Application here: English  Versión española 

Return completed applications to the Creswell School District Office at 998 West A Street.

Can I apply online?

Yes, visit https://www.ode.state.or.us/apps/frlapp to complete an online application.

Do I need to apply for each child separately?

No, only one application is required per household, and all household members should be listed. Foster children are now considered members of the household.
