Free and Reduced Lunch

External LinkApply For Free/Reduced Meals ONLINE! We are pleased to announce that you may apply for Free or Reduced Meal Benefits over the Internet!

Do NOT fill out an application if you’ve received a letter this summer stating your child was already  approved for free meals because you receive Food Stamps.

Reminder: All Kindergarten Students and New Students must pay full price for meals until his/her application has been approved even if his/her siblings receive free or reduced price meals.

If you have any questions, please call 358-5021 between 6:30 AM and 2:45 PM.

Lunch Information is Online!

Parents can view student meal activity and account balances for their children using a secure website. The system requires parents to create a user account. Users must provide e-mail address, password, student name(s), student ID numbers as well as the student's date of birth. They will then receive an e-mail from MealMagic with a temporary password allowing them access to the account(s).

Breakfast Is Important! Did you know that students who eat breakfast are able to perform better in school? Research confirms that students who eat breakfast do better in reading and math, are able to be better problem-solvers, and are able to behave and concentrate better than students who haven't eaten. Alpena Public Schools has been serving school breakfast since 1984!
