Craig Press staff report

CRAIG —  Free and reduced-price meals are available for qualified children attending Moffat County School District schools.

Applications for free and reduced-price school meals, instructions, and an informational letter to households are available at the front office of all schools and at the administration building. Only one application is required for all children in a household, and information provided on the application is confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining eligibility and verifying data.

An application cannot be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information, as indicated on the application and instructions.

Depending upon circumstances, the school district may contact a family to notify members of their eligibility to participate.

Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year. The household may complete an application if any household member(s) have a decrease in income, become unemployed, have an increase in family size, become eligible for SNAP, TANF or FDPIR benefits, or become categorically eligible.
