Department of Child Nutrition
  • Free & Reduced-Price Meal Program

    Oxford School District participates in the USDA National Breakfast, Lunch and Snack Programs, and meals are available to all students. Some children pay the full advertised price, but low- and moderate-income children may qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

    Parents must fill out a new online application EVERY SCHOOL YEAR for their children to participate in the district’s program, even if their children qualified for the program last school year.

    Application Coming Soon!
    Check back on July 1 when our application opens for the 2017-2018 school year.

  • There are two ways to qualify:

    1. If you currently receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) or if you have a foster child, your child is eligible for free meals as long as you receive these benefits.
    2. If your household income is below certain monetary amounts, your child can eat free or at a reduced price of 40 cents a day for lunch.

    You can apply for free or reduced price meals by completing the online Free and Reduced Lunch Application. Parents must complete one application per household. Online applications will be processed by the OSD Child Nutrition Program office, and parents will receive a notification with the results of their application within a timely manner. New applicants will be responsible for paying full prices for lunch ($3 per day per child) until their application has been processed.

    • The new online Free and Reduced Lunch Program Application is also part of the upcoming school year’s online school registration process. Parents can complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Program Application and their children’s online school registration process all at once.
    • When submitting the online application, parents need to make sure they receive a confirmation number and save it in their personal records.
    • If parents need one-on-one help with the online application process, they can call the OSD Child Nutrition Program office at (662) 234-3541 and make an appointment for assistance in filling out the online application.
    • Parents or families who do not have access to a personal computer or Internet connection can access free computer use at the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library, which is open to the public. They can also come to the OSD Child Nutrition office to use a computer.
