Fort Benning Meal Application

Dear Parent, 

It is meal application time again!  Please review the chart in the FAQs section of the attachment to see if your family qualifies.  Military families of all ranks can qualify depending on household size.
 
For the first time this year, we have an online meal application at www.lunchapplication.com  We recommend that you "register," when given the option, so you can track the progress of your application. If you choose to complete then enclosed paper application instead, please return it to the District Office (5701 Santa Fe Rd, Bldg. 11800, Fort Benning) and allow 10 business days for us to review and process it.

If your child(ren) qualified for free or reduced meals last school year, this benefit will remain in place through October 5, 2020.  Please complete an application as soon as possible to prevent a gap in benefits.  

In the attachment, you will also find our district procedures for unpaid meal charges and worthless checks, as well as instructions for completing the application, and a flyer for how to easily pre-pay for your child's meals online through the K12 Payment Center.

Please email me with any questions you may have about applying for school meals or the Student Meal Program.
