2022-23 Free/Reduced Meal Info

Dear Knoch Families

Over the last two years, sponsors of the School Nutrition Programs have been operating under a number of waivers to provide program operators, children, students, and families with the greatest flexibility to obtain free nutritional meals during circumstances caused by the COVID pandemic. These waivers expired on June 30, 2022.  This means that meals will not be free for all students when they return to school this fall.

For the upcoming 2022-23 school year, in order for your child to be eligible for free or reduced meals, a Household Application will need to be completed and returned, and eligibility will be determined based on the application information unless a student is directly certified.  To apply online, visit http://www.compass.state.pa.us.  Instructions and a paper application are linked below.

If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]
