School Nutrition Program- Breakfast & Lunch


Free and Reduced Meals 2015-16

LUNCH APPLICATIONS WILL be available online before registration. Check back for updates.


Letters will be mailed at the end of July for all applicants who were pre-approved by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for free meals. School age student(s) listed on this letter are not required to have an application on file. If a student's name(s) from your household is missing on this letter, please call Dawn at 459-3568; per DPI we can automatically approve them for free meals because the approval is based per household. Lunch applications will not be needed for these circumstances. All letters sent from this office notifying your household of free and reduced status should be kept, do not throw away. These letters can be used as proof for discounts on programs/testing offered within the Sheboygan Area School District and Recreation Department. If you have any further questions, please call Dawn Schutte, Secretary at 459-3568.


Food stamp benefits have been cut to many of our Sheboygan Area School District families due to government cut-backs.  The Sheboygan Area School District School Nutrition Department is here to help our families in need. 

Please apply for free or reduced meals to help your household supplement your meals for your children.  The lunch program includes one hot lunch daily which is: entrée, fruit, vegetables & milk at all schools.  The free/reduced program also includes breakfast program Check with your school if breakfast is being served.  Parents will receive a letter notifying you of the status you have been approved for.  The lunch application information is confidential and will not be shared with other programs without your approval.

Lunch applications are located at all schools, our website at  the School Nutrition icon, or you can call the School Nutrition office at 920-459-3568. If your family is not approved for free due to the household income, you could be approved for reduced priced meals which would cost 40¢ daily for lunch or 30¢ for breakfast (where available).  If you send a cold lunch with your child, the cost of milk is 40¢. The Sheboygan Area School District does not offer a free/reduced priced milk program.

Please take advantage of the free/reduced lunch & breakfast programs that the Sheboygan Area School District offers. If you have any questions regarding the free/reduced program, please call our office at 459-3568.

Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals if your household income falls at or below the limits on this chart.

The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do not, we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. The last four digits of the social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) case number or other FDPIR identifier for your child or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We MAY share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
