Elementary School Meals for 2022-2023

As a result of COVID-19, Melissa ISD was able to offer free meals to all elementary students due to temporary flexibilities afforded by the federal government. The U.S. Congress did not provide funding in this year’s budget to allow schools to continue to serve these free meals. Families can still apply for meal assistance through the Free & Reduced Price Meal Program.

Meal vs. A La Carte

What qualifies as a “Lunch Meal”? In order to qualify for the Lunch Meal price, the student must take three or more of the five food groups: 1) fruits (one-half cup), 2) vegetables (one-half cup), 3) grains, 4) protein, and/or 5) dairy. If the student only takes one or two items, each item will be charged individually at the a la carte pricing.
