Educational Benefits & Free and Reduced-price Meals

Educational Benefits and Free and Reduced-price Meals

Bloomington Public Schools will return to charging for school meals in the 2022-23 school year,  as the federal waiver funding free school meals expired on June 30.

Many families are eligible for educational benefits, including free and reduced-price meals, waivers for certain school fees and Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits.

Qualifying applications generate much needed educational funds for all of our schools so we ask all families to complete the Application for Educational Benefits each year.

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.
