Free and reduced lunch applications open for 2022-2023 year


Sunnyslope students will no longer receive free breakfast and lunch for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.

The Arizona Board of Education has ended the universal free meal policy, which started in March 2020 in response to school district shut-downs.

Students and families will also no longer be able to take meals home, as they were during the pandemic.

Instead, the Board of Education said, “For next school year … families will need to complete an application through their school to determine if their household is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals.”

The free and reduced lunch application can be found here, along with additional information regarding the program.
