Free & Reduced Price Meals

We want to share an important announcement about your child’s meals for next school year.

The NSLP waiver that provided free meals to students expired June 2022.  This means that school meals will no longer be free for everyone during the 2023-24 school year, and you will now need to submit an application to qualify for free/reduced breakfast and lunch. Breakfast prices will resume at $1.85 and .30 reduced and lunch will cost $2.85 and .40 reduced.

However, we are thrilled to remind you that our campus will still participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and your family may qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast, as part of this program! You can begin applying for free and reduced-price meals today. Visit the links and use a single Free/Reduced-Price Meals Application for all students in your household.

Please note that families who are interested in free and reduced-price lunch must re-apply each school year. If you participated in the NSLP program in the past, you must submit a new application this year. If you do not apply by filling out a new application or you have not been notified that your child is eligible for free meals, your child will be charged the full price for meals.

Many students are eligible for free meals. Paper applications are available at the school office, or one may be printed from this webpage. Please provide a completed application to the office to find out if your child qualifies. It takes just a few minutes to apply and only one application needs to be completed for all children living in your household. Families can at any time submit a new application if there is a change in the household income or family number.

Completed applications can be dropped off at the school office or mailed to 12309 South Mustang Trail Way, Herriman, UT 84096. If you have questions regarding the 2023-24 Free and Reduced Priced application, contact the school office.  You may also email Lyndie Perkins at

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the National School Lunch Program?

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and non-profit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. Additional information about the NSLP.

While we have some flexibility in what foods we offer to our students, we are required to plan our menus in accordance with guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

These guidelines are designed to:

  • Increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Reduce the sodium and fat content of items served
  • Provide appropriate portion sizes for each age group

Which translates into the following for our students:

  • Students are required to take a fruit or vegetable with every meal
  • A weekly requirement of vegetable subgroups served to ensure a variety of vitamins and minerals are available
  • Weekly ranges of protein, grains, fruits, and vegetables, with daily minimums
  • The grains offered must be whole grain-rich products
  • Zero trans-fat in all items, and saturated fat limited to less than 10% of calories
  • Calorie ranges with minimum and maximum levels for each age group

How are families informed if they qualify for free or reduced price meal benefits?

Once processing is completed, families are mailed a letter identifying students’ eligibility for free, reduced or paid meals. From mid-August to late October, processing of meal benefit applications may take 7-10 days once received due to the large volume of forms received.

Families are encouraged to complete the current year application as early as possible to ensure that a student’s eligibility status is properly established early in the school year.

Do families need to complete an application for meal benefits each year?

Yes. Students returning to Athlos Academy of Utah start the first 30 days of the school year retaining their prior year’s eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. Families are encouraged during that initial time period to submit a current year application for processing. Families who do not submit a current year application (found above) for their student during the first 30 school days will roll over to the paid status on the 31st school day.

Families are responsible for the cost of school meals prior to eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals being established.

Can I submit an application for school meal benefits anytime during the school year?

Yes. While applications for the current year are typically submitted between August through October if a family’s income or household size changes during the year an application can be submitted to determine eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals.

My child has a special dietary need. May they still participate in the school meal program at their school?

Yes, but a Special Dietary Needs Request must be submitted to Food and Nutrition Services to ensure that proper foods are provided.

Under federal regulations, a Special Dietary Needs Request must be completed by a Licensed Physician (when identifying a disability such as a life-threatening food allergy or diabetes) or a Recognized Medical Authority (RMA) when identifying a non-disabling medical condition such as a food intolerance. For Special Dietary Needs Request purposes, an RMA includes a Licensed Physician, Doctor of Osteopathy, Licensed Physician’s Assistant, ARNP or Licensed Naturopathic Physician. Personal or religious food preferences such as vegan, vegetarian or halal, do not meet the definition of a disabling or non-disabling medical condition for which a special school meal will be provided. Families and students are encouraged to become familiar with the school meal menu to identify the days when these menu options are readily available. Forms may also be requested by contacting the school’s office.

How do you manage food allergies at school?

Managing food allergies in school is a team effort; our kitchen staff work collaboratively with school administration and our school nurse to ensure that the needs of students with food allergies are addressed. On a daily basis, our menus provide students with menu choices allowing each child to select food items that meet their taste preferences and allergy needs.

If your child has a special diet concern, please be sure to complete the Special Dietary Needs Request form and submit a copy to the main office. Accommodations will be made as necessary.

Listed below are the eight most common food allergies found among children and adults.
