The Cedar Rapids Community Schools is a participant in the federally subsidized National School Lunch Program. This program allows children from families that meet certain income guidelines to receive free or reduced priced meals. If your child was not directly certified, you must apply online or complete a paper application and return to your child's school's main office or the Department of Food and Nutrition.
