Free and Reduced-priced Meals (FARM) Application

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Completing the Application

Your child’s school offers nutritious, appetizing breakfasts and lunches each school day through National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs; most schools also offer a light snack or supper to students attending afterschool programming. The DCPS Free and Reduced-meal (FARM) application supports DCPS Food and Nutrition Services providing students with high-quality meals through federal meal reimbursement.

  • Please complete one application for all students that attend DCPS in your household every school year, even if they attend different DCPS schools.
  • Families with students only enrolled in Charter Schools do not need to complete a FARM application
