Free & Reduced Resource & Re-Application Reminder
As we work hard every day to deliver excellent education and meet critical needs for all of our families, we invite you to take a look at some important information about the overall value of the Free and Reduced Benefits Program at D49.org. We also want to share a friendly reminder that is extremely important for all qualifying families to complete the application process, regardless of the availability of meals at no cost for all D49 families. This will ensure access to all the benefits provided, which support programs at your student’s schools and includes individual assistance for school and transportation fees.
Families who are new to the program can register and apply, and qualifying families may reapply today, by clicking this link to PaySchools Central.

Nutrition Services Overview
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to student health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We're available for visits from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Help with processing a free-and-reduced application is available from 8 a.m. to noon.Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.Nutrition departments are regulated by the federal government and part of that regulation is to operate as a self-funded enterprise within a school district. This means that nutrition services does not take any tax-payer’s funds from the district to operate the meal programs.
