    Meal benefits must be applied for annually and can be completed by clicking on link above. PLEASE NOTE-Applying on line is the quickest way to have your application processed and usually occurs within 1-2 days.

    You may also get a paper application from the district office at:

    2120 E. O. Douglas Ave
    Sebring, FL 33870

    However, it may take up to 10 days from the time the paper application is submitted until benefits are started. Incomplete applications or applications submitted on the previous school year's form will cause delays in processing.

    If approved, your free or reduced price meal benefits are good for the entire current school year. Regardless of how you apply for meal benefits- you are responsible for payment of your child’s meals until eligibility for benefits is determined and meal charges accrued during this period CANNOT be forgiven.
