Sign Up Now for Free Lunch and Other Benefits

Did you know the National School Lunch Program provides more than free and reduced cost meals to our students?

When you sign up and qualify for the program, you become eligible for any future government-funded Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfers (P-EBT) similar to the $285 per child distributed last school year. The P-EBT funds work the same way as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and are meant to help families get the food they need during the current pandemic. 

The school lunch program benefits do not renew automatically each year. Families must reapply via School Café. 

SIGN-UP for a meal program

In addition to providing extra food, the government bases its distribution of resources to school districts on the number of students enrolled in the National School Lunch Program. This can impact whether Duncanville ISD receives new technology, free books and discounted or free testing (SAT/ACT) for high school seniors. There are also entire programs that support students and staff that receive their funding based upon how many families sign up for the National School Lunch Program.

To make sure Duncanville ISD receives the maximum benefits from this program, please sign up before October 30.

If you have questions, please email Duncanville ISD Nutrition Services representative Kenya Brooks Robinson at kbrooksrobinson@duncanvilleisd.org.
