Need a letter verifying that a student receives free meals at school?

The School District of Philadelphia participates in the Community Eligibility Provision of the National School Lunch Program. This program has reduced the paperwork burden placed on families and has eliminated the need to fill out individual paper applications to determine individual student eligibility for free or reduced meals.

Since we no longer collect paper meal applications, we do not have the ability to personalize a letter that would demonstrate or verify a student or family qualifications for Free or Reduced Priced meals.

We have drafted this Generic Letter that can be used to help programs that request this individual documentation (Comcast, Camps and Scholarships etc..) understand that all students in the School District of Philadelphia qualify for free meals.
