School Meal Application

Dieringer School District will have a free breakfast and/or lunch available all regular school days for any students who ask.  Breakfast will be available when they arrive at school.

PLEASE NOTE:  Full meals (breakfast and lunch) are free and include milk.  However, if your child would like a milk only, USDA does not cover the cost of single items, so there is a charge of .50 cents for extra milk. Please have money available in your child’s lunch account, or have them bring money to purchase milk.

Free & Reduced Program Extension

We are happy to announce that free meals for all children will be available throughout the 2021-22 school year.  The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that it has extended the free meal program through June 2022.  This allows us to continue to serve free and nutritious meals to ALL children.

Meal Application

  • Fill out form in Skyward
  • Only one application per family
  • Your information is protected by the law


The current USDA waiver that has allowed us to offer free meals to your students for the past two years will end at the end of this school year (21-22 SY).

This means that for the 2022-2023 school year, we will be back to charging our regular prices for school meals, with free/reduced price meals for qualified students. 

Meals continue to be free for all students through the last day of this 2021-2022 school year.


Free/reduced meal applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available on our website by the 1st of August. We encourage you to complete an application to avoid any unnecessary charges.

Applications will also be available at each school during Bulldog days, or Elementary Open Houses prior to the first day of school.
