Free and Reduced Price Meals

Northwest Local Schools Food Service Department participates in the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program. Through this program, free or reduced-cost meals are available to children whose families meet certain income criteria. Every student is given a free/reduced application on the first day of school or upon enrollment. A copy of the application can also be found by clicking on the Free and Reduced Price Meal Application on this website. One application should be used for all children living in the same household. It is not necessary to complete an application for each child. If you are interested in applying for free or reduced price meals, please return the completed application to any Northwest Local School your child attends.
