Families encouraged to complete online Free and Reduced Lunch applications

August 26, 2019


Attention Parents and Guardians!

The free and reduced breakfast and lunch application is now available online.


Please visit to begin the application process.

The application is the same as in years past.

This year, Parma City School District will not be sending paper copies of the application home with students. Instead, limited paper copies will be available in the main office of each building as well as in the PCSD Nutrition Services Office at the district’s Administrative Building located at 5311 Longwood Ave.


Families are strongly encouraged to use the quick and secure online free and reduced meal application.


The easy-to-use online application will walk families through the application process as well as outline qualification for benefits.


Just a reminder, families must apply every year for free and reduced breakfast and lunch. However, if a family receives SNAP benefits, their children are automatically qualified for the program and do not need to apply.

Nutrition Services Department recommends families apply now through the first two weeks of school, as the sooner families get in their applications, the better.

If a family’s income changes throughout the year, the application will remain available and open during the school year.

If you need assistance completing the application or have questions about free and reduced breakfast and lunch, please call the Nutrition Services Office at (440) 843-1304.
