Free & Reduced Price Meals - Online Application
Click the above banner to apply online
IMPORTANT: if you complete the online application, you are still applying for the CURRENT (2019-20) school year! If approved, your child will receive free or reduced-price meals until 30 days into the new school year. If you want to apply for 2020-21, you will need to wait until after July 1st. The online system will close on the last day of 2019-20 and will be reopened after July 1st.
Apply online for your children to receive free or reduced price school meals! Your application will be sent via a secure web site directly to Cabarrus County Schools, so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced.
Applications must be filled out each school year unless you receive a letter from us telling you that you do not need to apply. All applications received prior to July 1st only apply to the 2019-20 school year.
LunchApplication.com has been designed to make it easy for you to know exactly what information you need to provide and to guide you through the process. Once your application has been received the district office will determine your eligibility and send you a letter with the results.
