Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications

Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." The forms can be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office, lunchroom manager, or school nutrition office. A letter will be sent home with your child indicating your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money. 

Only complete one application per family.  Completed applications may be turned into the child's school lunchroom or returned to the Lowndes County Board of Education, 1592 Norman Drive, Valdosta. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. 

Families may also apply for free or reduced meals online this year! Families may apply online through  Read this informational flyer about online applications.
