Apply now for free or reduced-price school meals with fast, secure MEAL APP NOW

Tacoma Public Schools parents can now use MEAL APP NOW via the Internet to apply for free and reduced-price school meals for their children for the 2013-2014 school year. Apply soon to make sure your children do not miss meals if they are eligible for free or reduced-price breakfast and/or lunch school meals.
Fast and convenient, MEAL APP NOW eliminates lost paper applications and provides the school district with immediate access to completed applications for prompt processing. You can access this quick and secure program 24/7. 
Access MEAL APP NOW by clicking this link: You can find instructions and additional information on this website. If you do not have access to a computer or need assistance, you can come to the Nutrition Services Office, 3321 S. Union Ave., or call 253-571-3370. 
If you prefer a paper application, you can get one at all schools and the Nutrition Services Office. Please allow up to 10 working days for the district to determine your eligibility when you submit a paper application. 
Families must reapply each school year online or by paper application unless you received a letter notifying you that Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has approved your children for free school meals for the 2013-2014 school year. If some of your children were not listed in that letter, they may also be eligible for free school meals by contacting the Nutrition Services Office.
