Federal Income Guidelines for Free and Reduced-Price School Lunches to Remain at Current Levels for 2013-14 School Year



The Pennsylvania Department of Education has announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently released the federal income eligibility guidelines for free and reduced-price school meals and free milk through June 2014.
 
Schools and other institutions and facilities use the guidelines to determine eligibility for the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Special Milk Program for Children, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and the Summer Food Service Program.
 
Households receiving benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), need only include the SNAP or TANF case number on their application. Households enrolled in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) also may qualify for free or reduced-price school meals and should complete a Household Meal Benefit Application.
 
Federal law prohibits any child eligible under these programs from being discriminated against based on race, sex, color, national origin, age or disability.
