All USD 348 schools participate in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. Free and reduced priced meals are available to students whose family income falls within federal guidelines. For qualified families, reduced prices for all schools are $ .30 for breakfast and $ .40 for lunch. Even if you have qualified in the past, a new application must be filled out each school year.
