National School Lunch Program
All entering students should apply for the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program, which provides free or reduced-cost school meals to students that meet certain income guidelines. It is critical that all students apply for this program, regardless of income, because more applications means more federal funding for student programs in ALL areas...from special education to technology to tutoring. This is a highly-confidential program, and, with our electronic point of sale system, participating students cannot be identified in the serving lines. The application window opens July 1 before the school year starts and closes at the end of the school year. Students must reapply each year and transfer students must reapply upon entering the North Pocono School District. You are encouraged to apply online ...it is the fastest and easiest method for approval. Just click the "Click Here to Apply" button above to get started.
