ANCS participates in the federal free and reduced price meal program. Students from households with incomes at or below certain eligibility levels can qualify for free or reduced-price meals. As well, students who are members of households receiving food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits are eligible for free meals.
Free and reduced-price applications are given out at orientation, and ANCS asks that all families complete them, regardless of income level, as the schools may receive additional funding as a result. Application information is confidential and will be used to determine eligibility.
Per ANCS policy, a student whose meal payment balance is -$25.00 or greater will not be served schools meals or drinks until the balance is paid below $25.00. Pre-payment for all meals will help to avoid this situation for your student!
