Free and Reduced Price Meal Application

Carmel Clay Schools participate in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.  A benefit of these programs is the ability to provide free or reduced-price meals to families who are eligible according to the federal income guidelines. 

The regular price for lunch is $2.45 for elementary students and $2.65 for secondary students. The price for breakfast is $1.35. The price for milk is $0.60. Students may qualify for free meals or for reduced-price meals. Reduced-price is $.40 for lunch and there will be no cost for breakfast.

A new application must be filled out each year for meal benefits to continue. Meal benefits begin when the application has been processed and approved. The online application is an easy and convenient way to apply for meal benefits for your child(ren). Simply enter the requested information as accurately as possible, and all data will be instantly and securely sent for processing.  Start your family's meal benefits sooner by entering your information now!
