Free & Reduced Meals

Nutritious meals help students succeed in school on a daily basis. We want to make sure parents have a quick and simple way to access these benefits. Eligibility Chart. 

    Meal and Fee Waiver Benefits Through Direct Certification – SNAP, TANF or Income-based Medicaid

    If your student is normally granted benefits due to their SNAP, TANF or Income-based Medicaid, you do not have to submit an application. The State of Illinois provides us with a monthly file for qualifying students, the majority of which are matched July 1st. If you do not receive notification in July of direct benefits and you have an active SNAP, TANF or Income-Based Medicaid case number, please contact us at 630.636.3663. If your benefits have expired or you no longer qualify through direct certification, you can submit an application.
