DID YOU KNOW?

The National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are programs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provide low-cost or free meals to children each school day.

Do I Qualify?

Your student(s) may qualify for free or reduced priced breakfast or lunch if your household income meets the USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines (based on household size and income), or if your family currently receives SNAP benefits. Your students(s) may also qualify if they are considered to be a foster child, migrant, homeless, or runaway.

To see if you qualify, please submit an online or a paper application. We ask that you complete the application to maximize available funding from state and federal resources, as well as to provide certain meal and other benefits that may be available for your child. The eligibility for these funds and programs is linked to whether your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals in the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs.
Payment Information
Your student may pay by either cash or check.  If you would like to pay by credit card, click on family.titan12.com. Choose Colorado Charter School Institute as your School District.
