• Free and Reduced Meal Program

    Children need healthy meals to learn. North Allegheny School District offers healthy meals every school day. Your student(s) may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals. The reduced price is $0.30 for breakfast and $0.40 for lunch. Please remember that you must reapply for free/reduced meals every year, regardless if you were eligible the previous year. There is no deadline for submission of free/reduced applications; you may apply at any time throughout the school year.

    There has been a change for the 2023-2024 school year in how applications are processed using a PA access card number.  Pennsylvania has reiterated that medical assistance alone will not qualify a family for free meals.  The District will need to verify (on a PA website) that families applying receive food stamps or cash benefits, and not just medical assistance.  


    COMPASS provides an easy, convenient, and confidential application for free and reduced meals. Apply online on the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Social Services website.

    If your student's school participates in the breakfast program, and your student is eligible for free or reduced meals, it is strongly encouraged that the student participates in the breakfast program.
