Martin’s Mill Independent School District today announced its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.  Each school/site or the central office has a copy of the policy which may be reviewed by any interested party. 

Starting on Aug. 24 we will begin distributing letters to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits and any actions households need to take to apply for these benefits.  Applications also are available at Martin’s Mill ISD, 301 FM 1861, Ben Wheeler, 75754.

Criteria for Free and Reduced-Price Meal Benefits

1.  Household income that is at or below the income eligibility levels

2.  Household receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Food Distributing Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR)

3.  Child’s status as a foster child, homeless, runaway, migrant, or displaced by declared disaster

4.  Child’s enrollment in Head Start or Even Start
