July 2010

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Children need healthy meals to learn. Pendleton County Schools offers healthy meals every school day. Meal prices at the elementary schools are: breakfast $.70 and lunch $1.30. At the middle/high school meal prices are: breakfast $.85 and lunch $1.40. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-price meals. Reduced price is $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch.

To apply for free or reduced-price meals, use the Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application, which will be mailed to student homes in early August. Because applications will be scanned this year. The original form must be completed (no copies). If you need additional applications, please contact the Board of education Office or your child's school.

Be sure to fill out all required information as we cannot approve an application that is not complete. Applications will be processed as quickly as possible and a letter sent to you informing you of your child's meal benefit status.

It is important to return the application to me as quickly as possible. Changes to free and reduced will not be retroactive back to the first day of school this year. Free and reduced benefits begin the day the application is processed.

Return the completed application to:
Lorna Judy, Child Nutrition Director
Pendleton County Schools
P. O. Box 888 - 108 Walnut St.
Franklin, WV 26807.

1. Do I need to fill out an application for each child? No. Complete the application to apply for free or reduced-price meals. Use one Free and Reduced Price School Meals Family Application for all students in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information.
2.
Who can get free or reduced-price meals? Children in households getting Food Stamps or TANF and most foster children can get free meals regardless of your income. Also, if your household income is within the limits on the Federal Income Chart, your child(ren) can get free or reduced price meals.
3. Who should I include as members of my household? You must include all people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends). You must include yourself and all children who live with you.
4. Can homeless, runaway and migrant children get free meals? Please call Charles Hedrick at (304) 358-2207 to see if your child(ren) qualify, if you have not been informed that they will get free meals.
5. I get WIC. Can my child(ren) get free meals? Children in households participating in WIC may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. Please fill out an application.
6. Will the information I give be checked? Yes, we may ask you to send written proof.
7. If I don't qualify now, may I apply later? Yes. You may apply at any time during the school year if your household size goes up, income goes down, or if you start getting Food Stamps, TANF or other benefits. If you lose your job, your child (ren) may be able to get free or reduced-price meals.
8. What if I disagree with the school's decision about my application? You should talk to school officials. You may appeal the decision by calling or writing to:
