FREQUENTLY ASKED LUNCH QUESTIONS:
Q: If my child qualifies for free meals can they take a just a milk for free?
A: Unfortunately no. In order for the school to receive Maine State reimbursements for free meals the student must take a complete meal. So, we are only able to offer just milk by itself for $0.50 as an a la carte item to students qualifying for free and reduced meal prices.
Q: Do I need to fill out an application for each child or for all children attending different RSU 13 schools?
A: No. Please complete just one Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application listing all of the students in your household in section 1 of the form.
Q: Who should I include as members of my household?
A: You must include all people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends). You must include yourself and all children who live with you.
Q: Will the form be verified?
A: Your eligibility may be checked at any time during the school year. School officials may ask you to send written evidence that shows your child should get free or reduced price school meals.
Q: Can I appeal the school’s decision?
A: If you do not agree with the outcome of the application, you may discuss it with the School Nutrition Director: Charles Butler (30 Broadway ave, Rockland, Maine 04841, Ph 207-596-2014). If you wish to review the decision further you have a right to a fair hearing. This can be done by contacting the Hearing Official: Business Manager, 28 Lincoln Street, Rockland, Maine 04841, Ph 207-596-2001).
Q: Will information on my form be kept confidential?
A: We will use the information on your form to decide if your child should get free or reduced price meals. We may inform officials connected with other child nutrition, health and education programs of the information on your form to determine benefits for those programs or for funding and/or evaluation purposes.
Q: Can I apply for free and reduced price meals later?
A: You may apply for free and reduced price meals at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now but have a change, like a decrease in household income, an increase in household size, become unemployed or get food stamps, TANF or benefits from FDPIR, complete a form then.
