A $100 gas card will be given to one lucky family that turns in a Free and Reduced Application this year.
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) waiver that provided free meals to all students due to the COVID-19 pandemic expired on June 30, 2022. This means that school meals will no longer automatically be free for everyone.
Did you know that Free and Reduced Meals are more than a meal? Free and Reduced lunch applications affect funding in many areas. Qualifying for the meal benefit plan allows for two free ACT tests, a Waiver for College Admission Fees, and a Waiver for NCAA Clearinghouse.
Everyone must reapply for Free and Reduced Meals each year, even if you received free/reduced meals in the past.
Free and Reduced Meal applications can be found at www.poyenschool.com. Please call 501-332-8884 if you have any questions or need help.
