• Applying for free meals can earn more money for your school.  Here's how:
     
    Folsom Cordova is asking our families to apply for free and reduced school meals - even if they're not sure they'll use it.
     
    Why?  Because it turns out those applications could increase the amount of money your school receives to pay for resources that help students:  academic coaches, technology, musical instruments, field trips and more!
     
    Schools receive more money and resources based on the number of families who qualify for free and reduced meals - regardless of whether they decide to use the program.
     
    Here's how it works:

    Easy and private: There's no need to bring us paper applications, and we keep your information private. Your child will never be identified as a participant. 
     
    Another benefit?  You and your student may be eligible to receive other services: Not sure you'll use the meal program? That's OK!  You don't have to - but keep your approval letter.  It could qualify you for other services, like reduced-cost bus transportation.
     
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Families in the following schools DO NOT need to fill out a meal application (for school funding purposes, these schools will receive alternative income verification forms):
