AAPS Free and Reduced Lunch Applications
AAPS Free and Reduced Lunch Applications - Apply Now!
For the past two years, school districts across the United States, including the Ann Arbor Public Schools, have been fortunate to be able to provide free meals to all students under the COVID-19 pandemic initiatives. While there is still some debate about whether this free meal program will continue, we need to be prepared for this program to end, as announced, at the end of June, 2022.
It is important that qualifying families submit a Free and Reduced Meal application before the start of the 2022/2023 school year to ensure your student(s) receives free or reduced-price meals for the new school year.
If you have an approved application on file for this past school year, that award will be valid the first 30-days of the start of Fall 2022/2023 school year - but you must fill out a new application in order for your student to qualify for free or reduced meals for the remainder of the school year.
How to Apply for Free & Reduced Meals
For students who meet the family income level requirements, they will reduce or waive meals provided in our schools. We encourage every AAPS family to apply using the online application process. Select the link to enter the Ann Arbor Family Portal and select “Guest”, to get started: https://annarbor.familyportal.
It is fast and easy to apply! You can use your computer, phone or tablet to apply, but we suggest you use Google Chrome to better access the application. Please make sure when you fill out the income section you use your GROSS income before taxes and benefits are taken out. It is not the amount deposited into your bank account.
We can also send you a paper application to return to your school or ask the school to put an application in your student’s backpack to fill out. Please contact your school or call the Food Service Office at: 734-994-2265.
