All families in the district are asked to complete the school meal eligibility form, regardless of income or eligibility as school funding is tied to gathering this information.

ONLINE APPLICATIONS: schoolcafe.com
PAPER APPLICATIONS: Available in the main office

Do I need to fill out this form if I received free/reduced meals last year?
Yes, all families are required to fill out this form every year.

I have a student in my household that does not go to a Minneapolis public school, do I include them on the application?
Yes, include all students currently enrolled in the Minneapolis Public Schools district on the top portion of the application where it asks for student information. On the bottom half of the application it asks for household members. Here you will add the information of the person who is filling out the forms along with any spouses, cousins, sister, brothers, aunts, uncles, boyfriends, girlfriends, nephews, nieces, longtime friends, infants—anybody that lives in the house. Their information is included in the "household members" section of the application, even if they do not receive any income.

When visiting schoolcafe.com select "Register". Parents will be prompted to create an account that includes a username and a password. They will then be able to select the eligibility tabs in order to complete the application.
