Meal Benefits - Free or Reduced-Price

Applying for Meal Benefits 

Thomas MacLaren School is providing meals to all students for the 2021-22 school year regardless of free or reduced-price (FRL) meal status for this school year; however, people should still fill out the application to obtain FRL status. 

Benefits for children who qualify for FRL include:

  • waiving of payment for mandatory fees, such as school books
  • reduced fees for sports and other school or non-school programs
  • increased funding for our school
  • another possible round of Pandemic EBT food benefits  
Your child will need to qualify for free or reduced-price meals to qualify for any possible P-EBT benefits for this school year.

Under the student information section, enter your student’s information; at the bottom of the section, select Thomas MacLaren School as your school. Kindly go to the end of the application and give permission for the school to receive this meal benefit application status. Giving us permission allows us to extend to you reduced fees for student fees, field trip fees, and athletic/extracurricular fees.
