RAPIDES PARISH, La. (RPSB) - Families impacted by the Federal Government shutdown could qualify for free or reduced lunch due to a temporary reduction in household income.

Even if a household does not normally qualify, a family could be eligible for the remainder of the school year because of the current loss of income.

The Food and Nutrition Service Office will notify households applying of their eligibility within 24 hours.

Free and Reduced Meal Applications can be completed online (Click "Meal Applications" on the district website at rpsb.us). The District School Food Service Department is prepared to quickly process all application submitted.

Households can contact the Food & Nutrition Service Office at 318-442-0910 from 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday – Friday or email erma.davis@rpsb.us with any questions or concerns.
