Eligible families urged to apply for FRL program

Parents can apply online for meal benefits for the upcoming 2014-15 school year. A new application must be submitted each school year. Many students are eligible for free meals through the National School Lunch Program available in all Clark County School District (CCSD) schools. The program provides nutritious meals (breakfast and lunch) every school day and does not identify students who receive free meals from those who pay for meals. Parents can view the income guideline eligibility chart at ccsd.net/departments/food-service or at applyforlunch.com.
