Free and Reduced Priced Lunch

If you think you might be eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, but haven’t yet signed up, please do so now! Here is the application: https://bsd405.org/services/nutrition-services/free-reduced/

Why the urgency? We expect government funds may be made available to families signed up for free or reduced-price lunches. These would be passed on to families to cover the cost of meals they have had to purchase while school has been conducted remotely.

If you aren’t sure if you have signed up for FRL, please call BSD’s Nutrition Services office at 425-456-4507 to confirm.
