Penn Manor School District has, for the past two years, provided breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students. For the upcoming school year, the waivers that enabled school districts to offer free meals during the pandemic have expired.
This means that families that want to receive meals free of charge in the 2022-2023 school year must apply for free and reduced-priced meal benefits. If your children qualified for free and reduced-priced meals in previous years, they will be able to receive them until October 1, 2022. To extend those benefits for the entire 2022-2023 school year, families must reapply.
Click here to fill out the application, which considers family size and household income. Parents will need to create a SchoolCafe account to access the application.
Here are instructions for filling out 2022-2023 application. Here is a paper copy of the application that can be filled out and submitted to the food service department.
By submitting your application, your school may receive additional funding to improve nutrition and education programs. Applying for free and reduced-price meals also can help families with fees for SATs, PSATs, college applications, advanced-placement exams and other expenses that may come up during a child’s high school career. Qualifying for free and reduced-price meals also means your family may qualify for additional benefits, such as a low-cost internet service.
Please complete the 2022-2023 application online as soon as possible to take advantage of these benefits!
If you have any questions or need help with the application process, please contact Penn Manor food service assistant Deanna Witmer, at Deanna.Witmer@Pennmanor.net or food service director Courtney Kolp, at Courtney.Kolp@Pennmanor.net.
