Educational Benefits (Free or Reduced Fees)
As part of Minnesota's Free School Meals Program, starting in the 2023-24 school year all students can have one breakfast and one lunch free of charge each day at school.
However the Application for Educational Benefits is still important for students who may qualify for benefits like reduced fees for transportation, athletic programs, academic or extracurricular activities, and to help schools qualify for education funding, discounts and other meal programs that benefit all students.
All families are encouraged to apply or opt out unless Bloomington Schools has notified them by letter or email that they qualify for educational benefits for this school year.
Complete this form if you are choosing to opt out of completing an Application for Educational Benefits for school year 2023-24 and wish to discontinue messages regarding the application.
