The nutrition of District students is an important factor in their educational progress. Portville, therefore, participates in federally funded school breakfast and lunch programs, and shall provide free or reduced price food services to qualified district students.
All families are encouraged to fill out an application for free and reduced meals. Please fill one out even if you think you do not qualify or do not wish to participate. All information is strictly confidential. Qualifying applications help us to receive special grants and funding throughout the school district. New applications must be completed each year as they expire on September 30, every year. Students will remain the same status as last year until a new application is filed or Sept. 30, whichever comes first.
Families will not receive free or reduced meal prices after October 1 until a new application has been submitted and processed. If at any point through the school year, your family has had a reduction in income, please contact us, even if you have already filled out an application.
