A copy of the policy may be viewed at </span><a href="http://www.squaremeals.com/" style="line-height:1.5;text-decoration:underline;">www.squaremeals.com</a><span style="line-height:1.5;">.</span></p><p style="text-align:left;">Children living in households with incomes at or below the federally approved levels, based on household size, may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Transfer students approved for the program from another school district may either complete a Katy ISD application or provide documentation of their eligibility status. Foster children who are the legal responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside. Children with statuses as homeless, runaway, migrant, or displaced by a declared disaster also qualify for meals.</p><p style="text-align:left;">The Nutrition and Food Service Department encourages parents in all eligible households to complete an online application prior to the start of school. The online application can be found at the District website at <a href="http://www.katyisdfoodservices.com/" style="text-decoration:underline;">www.katyisdfoodservices.com</a>. Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service Department is working with local agencies to identify all children who are categorically and program eligible. If your student receives a letter of approval the first days of school then you do not need to complete a new application for the 2014-2015 school year. Any household that does not receive a letter and feels they should have, should contact the Nutrition and Food Service Department at (281) 396-6240.</p><p style="text-align:left;">A Free and Reduced meal application form and an information letter will also be distributed in students' first day packets. <strong>A paper application will not need to be completed if you submitted the application online</strong>. If your child was on the program at the end of the previous school year, they are eligible for the same benefit for the first 30 operating days of the new school year or until a new application is processed. A new application is required each school year.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Nutrition and Food Service staff are available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 5364 Franz Road in Katy to assist parents in completing the application. Bring the names of all members of the household and their <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Gross Monthly Income</span>. For any questions, call the Katy ISD Nutrition and Food Service office at (281) 396-6240.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Applications are available online, at any District school, and at the Nutrition and Food Service office. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year, and the 2014-2015 online application will be available one week prior to the start of the new school year. The information households provide on the application will be used for the purpose of determining meal eligibility. Application information may be verified by school officials at any time during the school year.</p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>2014-2015​ School Year</strong><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/Free%20Reduced%20Meals.jpg" alt="Free Reduced Meals.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:659px;" /></p><p style="text-align:left;"><br></p></div>
