Fuel Up! Subsidy
Eating healthy food helps children to do better in school.
To ensure that no child goes hungry, and every child eats healthy while at school, subsidies are available to families through Fuel Up!
Some families will require a full subsidy, where meals will be provided at no cost to the families, and some families will be able to pay a partial fee, supplemented with a partial subsidy. Subsidies can only be used toward the purchase of one hot or cold entrée per school day (small size for $5.75 or larger sizes for $6.75).
