Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students

To offer this program to all students, dining services needs families to fill out a few forms

We are pleased to inform you that as part of the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, Kingsley Area Schools will be participating in the Michigan School Meals Program, which allows ALL students enrolled in our district a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO Charge to your household each day.

To be able to offer this program to all students we do need some household information.

  • If your student attends Kingsley Elementary or Middle School, the Education Benefits Form (EBF) needs to be completed.

  • For students attending Kingsley High School, the Free & Reduced Price Meal Application needs to be completed.

  • Forms will be available to you at your student’s open house or you can save time by completing this form online at and selecting the form for your student.

These reports are critical in determining the amount of money that our school receives from a variety of State and Federal supplemental programs like Title IA, At-risk (31a), Title II A, E Rate, etc. These supplemental programs have the potential to offer support and services for our students including, but not limited to:

  • Instructional support (staff, supplies & materials, etc.)

  • Non-instructional services (counseling, social work, health services, etc.)

  • Professional Learning for staff

  • Parent and Community engagement supplies and activities

  • Technology

We are asking that you please complete and submit these forms as soon as possible to ensure that additional funding for our school is available to meet the needs of our students. All information on the report submitted is confidential.

All forms completed and turned in before September 8th will be entered into a prize drawing.

No Charging Allowed for School Year

No charging will be permitted this year; all accounts must have enough funds on them to receive extra entrees, ala carte items, individual milk, etc. or pay with cash.

Donor Pays Off Student Accounts

There was also a generous donation made to the school and ALL student accounts have been made whole. Thank you!


If you have any questions, please reach out to me, Kristy Donner, at or 231-263-5262 ext. 4055.
