MADISON COUNTY SCHOOLS
CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAM

Free & Reduced Meal  Application Information

Any questions concerning free/reduced applications?
Contact: 
Amy Williams @ 256-852-2557 ext 61703


Confidentiality: All information is confidential and will only be used for the meal program,
unless you request to release the information. Student computer accounts look identical to
cash paying students, so no one can tell what the status is of any student. We respect your privacy.

New Application Each Year: Applications are available at the Madison County Schools central office after July 1st.  Applications will be sent home with each child on the first day of school.  A new application must be completed each school year to qualify for free or reduced meals. Your child's eligibility statue carries over to the new school year for the first 30 school days, allowing parents time to re-apply.

Only one application per household should be submitted and everyone living in the house must be included on the application.

Verification: Your eligibility may be checked at any time during the school year. You may be asked to provide documentation to verify your income.

Notification: Please allow 10 working days to process your application. You will recieve a notification letter from the Central Office Child Nutrition Program office of  your eligibility status.

Direct Certification:  If you receive a letter stating you are free DCRT for this school year, you are not required to fill out an application.

 Foster:  A foster child living in your home qualifies for free meals regardless of your income. You may include all foster children on same application as the rest of your household. 

*One application per household.

         Please complete:  One application per family even if you have children attending different schools in our system.

  • An income application must have a signature and last four (4) didgets of the social security number of the parent/guardian. We cannot process your application without this information.

New Students: New students will need to bring money for meals until their application is processed and approved.

Student Transfer: If a student transfers within the Madison County School System their eligibility will also transfer. A new application is not necessary.
