Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Transitions Back to Application Requirement for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals 

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, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility. Starting on July 18, 2022, applications will be available to fill out for the 2022-2023 school year. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals available online at www.schoollunchapp.com. A paper copy may be downloaded from the website or requested at any campus or Nutrition Services office.

 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

Decisions regarding payment for school meals are made at the national-government level, not by the school nutrition team or TDA. The dedicated staff in Nutrition Services is looking forward to serving healthy, balanced meals to students in the new school year.  If you have any questions, please call 817-251-5617 or email [email protected]



GCISD is now accepting National School Lunch Program (NSLP) applications for 2022-2023.  

There are many other benefits associated with the free and reduced application, such as free hotspots, SAT, ACT, AP Exam Fees waived, discounts on college applications, discounts on summer school classes, other school activities and much more.

Application English (Application Espanol)

The application can be found and completed online at www.SchoolLunchApp.com.

Students that attend Colleyville Heritage High School and Grapevine High School must apply to determine eligibility to receive free or reduced-price meals.

If you need assistance or have questions, please contact (817) 251-5617 or [email protected].
