Meal Prices in 2010-11; Free/Reduced Price Eligibility

No Change in Meal Prices for 2010-11
Parents may apply for free/reduced price meals

This year Parkway will be offering nutritious meals every school day at the same prices as 2009-10. Full priced breakfast costs $1.75 and lunch costs $2.50. Some children may qualify for free or reduced price meals. The cost of a reduced price meal is $0.30 for breakfast and $0.40 for lunch.

Children can get free or reduced price meals if their household income is within income guidelines established each year by the federal government. Children in households eligible for food stamps or temporary assistance and most foster children can get free meals.

A parent may complete one application for free or reduced price meals for all children in the household. Applications are available on the Parkway Food Service Web site or by calling (314) 415-8246.
