Breakfast & Lunch Program

We are pleased to announce good news: This school year, Great Hearts Texas will be offering healthy meals every school day to all students at no cost! Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year. We are excited to offer this to our Great Hearts families!

While no application or eligibility determination is required for your student to receive free meals this school year, we encourage all families to fill out the Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) application if you feel your family may qualify for the following reasons:

●   The FRL application is a multi-use form that also determines discounts for other programs such as    uniform vouchers (while supplies last), school supplies, sports, and after-school care.

●   Income eligibility requirements will likely resume next school year. As such, 21-22 applications submitted and approved by June 30, 2022 are valid through the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 school year.

●   As a district, we are required to report the number of economically disadvantaged children. The    higher our FRL percentage, the more funding our charter receives.
