VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) - The Lee County School District is offering a program to families that could allow free or reduced-price meals for students.
According to the district's Director of Child Nutrition Valerie Weivoda, anyone who falls under a certain threshold for income, their child may be eligible to receive discounted or free meals in the lunchroom.
The program is based on eligibility guidelines set by the federal government.
According to Weivoda, the amount of income in a household will determine if a family can get a reduced-price meal and how much it will cost.
Weivoda said there is no deadline to apply for the program.
Applications are available at the front office of every school in the Lee County School District and can be found at SchoolLunchApp.com.
Weivoda said most applications will take 10 to 14 days to process.
Lee County Schools spokesman Robert Byers is asking parents to complete only one application per family.
That application will apply to all children in the household.
