Lunch Assistance

Children need healthy meals to learn. St.John the Baptist offers healthy meals every school day. Lunch costs $3.25 a meal, which includes milk and the fruit/vegetable bar. For those bringing lunch from home, students have the option to purchase the fruit/vegetable bar for an a la cart price of $1.50. Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals. Reduced price is $0.40 for lunch. If your child(ren) qualified for free or reduced price meals at the end of last school year, you must submit a new application by September 15th, 2023 in order to avoid an interruption in meal benefits.
