Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope you and your family are doing well. We will begin accepting applications for free and reduced lunch for the 2024-2025 school year on July 1st, 2024. If you think your family will qualify for this program, please fill out the application before the start of school so that your free/reduced status will be updated on the first day. 

We use a program called SchoolCafe to process all school meals payments. To set up a SchoolCafe account, you will need the six-digit number assigned to your student when they enroll in our school. When you set up your account on SchoolCafe, you can also apply for free and reduced meals. 

A credit card or an ACH payment from a checking or savings account will need to add funds to your student’s account. The POS collects a small convenience fee to add funds to the account.

Please use this link, to complete your application.

If you have any questions about this process, or if you are in need of your student’s SchoolCafe ID number, please contact the GMCS Food Services Department.
