Free/Reduced Meals and Textbook Assistance

Your family may be eligible for assistance paying for cafeteria meals and school fees.

Households that meet the financial guidelines of the National School Lunch Program are eligible for free or reduced meal prices, as well as a discount applied to textbook rental fees. To receive this support parents must apply annually and provide information that serves to verify household income. The application is easy to fill out (choose online or paper format) and it includes a place to indicate that you also want to apply for textbook assistance.  Please make sure to submit only one form (application) per household, even if the children are in different schools.  


(Applications for the 2022-23 school year will be accepted beginning July 1st, 2022)


We encourage P-H-M parents to apply online at this website:


Applying online is faster and easier than using printed forms, and your benefits will start sooner!
