Registration Now Open for Free, Reduced Meals at Tempe Elementary

Post Date:07/09/2019

Ward_KaylaBond_400x244Tempe Elementary is committed to feeding all children quality and nutritious meals. That is why the Nutrition Services Department offers free and reduced-price meal benefits to students of income-eligible families and families who have been faced with changing financial circumstances. 

The most efficient way to obtain the free or reduced-price meal benefits is to register online. The registration, which opened July 8, can be found at tempeschools.org/mealapplication. A complete online application can be processed the next day, as opposed to paper applications that can take up to 10 business days.

Taking a few moments to complete the confidential application directly ensures the financial support and successful continuation of Tempe Elementary’s healthy, quality meal program for all children. The number of applications that are returned and approved can affect how much funding schools receive to help students meet academic benchmarks, including materials like books and computers.

Whether your child is a new or returning student, families who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals must apply at the beginning of each school year. Don’t delay, apply today!
