In the 2022-2023 school year, schools are required to return to charging for school meals on the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) based on program eligibility. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Calallen ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility. Below is information on the 2022-23 meal prices and meal applications. Please note, that despite returning to charging for school meals, the District will continue to offer breakfast for free for all students during the 2022-2023 school year.
2022-2023 Meal Prices
Pre-K to 5th Grade
6th Grade to 12th Grade
Reduced Price (All Grades)
2022-2023 Meal Applications
Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, available at https://calallen.healtheliving.net/, and return the completed form online or to any school office. Applications may be submitted anytime during the school year. The application will determine a child’s eligibility for free and reduced-price meals and may assist in the determination of eligibility for other state or federal benefits. Only one application needs to be completed per household. Schools will notify the household of the child’s eligibility. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers school nutrition programs in Texas and offers an eligibility calculator at www.SquareMeals.org/ProgramEligibility .
