Complete your School Lunch Form--Many students in our district are eligible for free lunch, which is determined by responses on the School Lunch Form. Even if you do not think you are eligible, you should complete a form anyway because, in addition to funding for the school lunch program, responses on these forms are also used for other funding programs that help pay for other programs.
