You can apply for Free or Reduced-Price Meal Benefits online!

Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who qualify.  If your family chooses to apply, Katy ISD offers SchoolCafe Instant Online Application Processing for parents to easily and conveniently apply for meal benefits for your child(ren).  If you are unable to complete an online application, a paper application can be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office.  A notification letter will be emailed electronically or sent home with the youngest child listed on the application enrolled in Katy ISD informing you of the child’s status.  If any student(s) are missing from the notification letter, please contact our office to ensure all your household students are receiving appropriate benefits.  Until notification, you must provide your child(ren) with a lunch or lunch money.  A new application must be submitted every school year.  The prior year meal benefits are only available for the first 30 operating days.  Once a new application is processed, the new eligibility will be valid for the entire school year (and for the first 30 operating days of the next school year).  

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.

Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.

Foster Children - In certain cases, foster children are eligible for free and reduced-price meals regardless of your income. If you have foster children living with you and want to apply for them, please contact us.
