Although all students are receiving free breakfast and lunch this school year, it is still very important that families fill out the application for educational benefits. Districts depend on these applications to help fund many programs outside of school lunches.
Qualifying for free or reduced meals can also benefit your family by lowering the cost of activities/athletics, testing fees, reduced field trip fees and if the P-EBT is renewed, it can mean dollars for your family.
If you have already filled out an application for the 21-22 school year, thank you! If you still need to complete this process, you can fill out this application online at https://austin.k12.mn.us/frp.
If you prefer a paper application, you can pick one up at your students school or call 460-1821 and we will send one to you.
Thank you so much for completing this important step, helping Austin Public Schools continue to provide educational opportunities for our students!
