Free Lunch Program Changing In Local Schools

Changes this school year in free meals and reduced price meals for Kirksville R-iii schools.

The system has put out a chart, so that parents can apply for free or reduced prices lunches. The cost of the meal depends on how much a family makes and how many children they have.

For example, a family with one child that earns $340 a week, can get free breakfast and lunch for the child. If that family earns $484 a week, then the child would qualify for a reduced price. Families will have to provide income and other information to be enrolled in the program.
