Round Rock ISD to offer free, reduced lunch policy for select students

The new policy would allow Round Rock children under the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs to have free or reduced-priced meals.

ROUND ROCK, Texas — The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) announced Monday its new policy that will provide free and reduced-priced meals for students under the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.

According to RRISD, it will use the 2018-2019 Income Eligibility Guidelines to determine who is eligible for the new lunch policy. Children from a household whose income is at or below the level shown are eligible for benefits. Foster students who fall under the responsibility of a welfare agency or court may also be eligible for benefits, RRISD said.

Applications are being sent to households with information regarding the availability of free and reduced-priced meals.

To apply for the new lunch policy, households must fill out the paper applications and return it to the school or complete the form online here.
