Free & Reduced-Price Meal Program

Spring Branch ISD is pleased to announce that this school year, healthy meals will be offered every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-22 school year. Each school/site or central office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed upon request.

We must continue to gather individual eligibility for every student. This important data allows SBISD families to receive benefits, such as discounted internet costs, reduced fees for SAT/ACT testing and help with college application fees, as well as, maximizing important state and federal funding for individual schools. It is critically important that we collect this data to maximize the available benefits to all students and our schools.

While no application or eligibility determination process is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-23 school year.
