From the Manchester School District...

School meals are free for everyone this year, however we still need families to complete the application for free and reduced meals. If you believe you may qualify, you can apply online right now. Just go to and click “Get Started.” 

The application is available in multiple languages – you can select a different language at the top of the page.

If meals are free for everyone, why would you need to fill out the application? District funding for important educational services is tied to the percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals. This means that not filling out the application now will hurt our schools in the near future. This means loss of funding for teachers, important school programs and critical technology. In addition, students that qualify can get benefits including waivers for college application fees and discounted AP exams. 

The application is about more than just meals – it’s about making sure the students who need the support the most continue to receive it. Please take a moment and complete the application today at

Thank you!
