Applications for meal assistance are accepted throughout the entire school year. A new application must be on file each year and benefits will not begin until the application has been processed.
If you would like an application mailed to you, please contact Monica Glorioso at (262) 670-3315 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can also be picked up at school from the Receptionist Window, Main Office, Attendance Office, Counseling Office, or Food & Nutrition Services Office. If you have elementary and/or middle school students, you will need to complete a separate application and return it to the respective school. Hartford Union High School is a separate district and we cannot accept applications from other districts.
All families who believe they may qualify for Free or Reduced Priced Meals are encouraged to apply even if their child may not purchase lunches. This helps the school qualify for additional education programs and funds. Qualifying families may also have eligible school fees waived.
Families qualifying for free or reduced price meals will receive breakfast at no cost.. Lunch is also included at no cost or the reduced price of 40¢. Only one full breakfast and lunch per day qualifies for meal assistance. All ala carte items and extra items purchased in the main line or bar line are at full price.
The application information and status of assistance are keep confidential. Students do not need to use separate lunch lines or let the cashier know that they are on the program. The computerized Meal Accounting System tracks the purchases and charges accordingly.
