Families are encouraged to apply for free and reduced meals throughout the school year
Clover Park School District families can apply for the free and reduced meal program anytime throughout the school year. Families can also update existing applications in the event of job or income losses, which may make them eligible for additional assistance. In October 2008, the income eligibility requirement for Basic Food, formerly known as food stamps, increased to 200 percent of the federal poverty level. This increase enabled more families to qualify for free meals.
