Stark DD participates in the National School Lunch Program which allows us to offer free/reduced price meals for those who qualify. Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes – this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
If your family chooses to apply, you may do so through an electronic process. You receive the result immediately. If you have multiple children attending Stark DD programs, only one application per family is necessary.
If you prefer to apply through a paper Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form, the forms can be obtained from and returned (completed) to your child’s school office. You will then be notified of your child’s status within 7 days after the school has received your form. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
