Free and Reduced Lunch Application

Spanish Version

The Okaloosa County School District encourages all families to complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Application even if you do not think you qualify for free or reduced lunch. The free and reduced lunch application is more important than you think! If approved, your child will receive nutritious meals including breakfast and lunch for free or at a reduced price. This designation will also make your child eligible for discounted college application and college entrance exam fees. For the district, it determines school funding discounts on internet and technology and gives schools access to certain grants all of which will impact your child's education.
