Why Apply for Free and Reduced Meals?
¿Por qué solicitar comidas gratis oa precio reducido?
To be eligible for free or reduced breakfast and lunch, families MUST complete an application every year. Applications from last year will be valid through the end of September. The state approved funding to provide free breakfast for students who are also on the reduced meal plan.
Families must apply through their Schoolcafe account. Create an account on the Brewer Bear Cafe website or request a paper application from the school’s front office or Child Nutrition Office, 817.367.1310.
Individuals who do not apply will start the 2023-24 school year as a paid student. Families who received a notification letter that the student is directly certified for free or reduced meals should not complete an application. Contact the Child Nutrition Office if any children in the household attending school are not listed in the letter.
Our schools can participate in the Universal Free Breakfast program. If 80 percent or more of the students at that school qualify and complete the application for Free and/or Reduced Meals, ALL students at that campus will receive free breakfast. All Liberty Elementary students will receive free breakfast through the Universal Free Breakfast program in 2023-24.
