IMPORTANT CHANGE TO THE PPS LUNCH PROGRAM
NEW - Families with students attending the schools listed below will need to submit a meal application before school begins August 30 to determine if they are eligible to receive free or reduced price school lunch. School lunch will no longer be automatically free to all students enrolled in the school. Families are encouraged to apply online at www.pps.net/Page/2464. Paper applications are available at your school office, cafeteria and online. All students will continue to receive lunch at no charge until October 11. If a meal application is not submitted or if a family is not eligible to receive free or reduced lunch, meal charges will begin October 12.
If your family is ineligible for meal benefits you can provide a meal from home, or pay for school meals with cash, check or debit/credit card online at www.schoolcafe.com. NOTE: There is a 5% convenience fee per online transaction.
Please note that the changes do not apply to breakfast, which will remain free to all students. We are committed to working with families to ensure those who qualify will continue to receive free or reduced lunches. If you need assistance in applying, please contact your school or PPS Nutrition Services at 503-916-3399 or email@example.com.
