Families can apply for free, reduced lunches

The Hamilton School District announced its policy for children unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program, or milk served under the Special Milk Program. Household size and income criteria determine eligibility.


To apply for free or reduced price meals or free milk, households must fill out the application available through the Infinite Campus portal. Families who do not have access to the Internet, may contact the district’s Food and Nutrition Services Department at (262) 246-1973 x1142. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes and the household income falls at or below the levels shown above, the family should contact the school. Such changes may make households eligible for reduced price meals or free meals or milk, and they may reapply at that time.

In certain cases, foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If a household has foster children and wishes to apply for free or reduced price meals, the household should complete an application for a family of one or contact the school for more information.

The information provided by the household on the application is confidential. Under this program, no child will be discriminated against because of race, color, sex, national origin, age or disability.

The Hamilton School District is an equal opportunity provider. For more information, contact Kira Cerroni King, district food service manager, at (262) 246-1973 x1142.
