2020 Application for Educational Benefits

We are asking all families to complete the Application for Educational Benefits, regardless of whether you selected distance learning or the hybrid program this fall.

Did you know that completing these forms will...

  • generate revenue for Richfield Public Schools?
  • qualify schools and community sites to serve no-cost food to youth 18 and under both after-school and in the summer months?
  • determine benefits for students and families such as no-cost meals at school, reduced fees for athletics and test waivers for ACT/SAT?

The Application for Educational Benefits (formerly known as the Free and Reduced-Price Lunch Application) must be completed each year.

You can apply online or download and print an application on our Nutrition Services web page. Once you submit your application, you can check the status on the NutriStatus website.

You can also visit our Nutrition Services website for details about our school menu app, making online payments to your child’s meal account, setting up balance notifications and more. It’s your one-stop-shop for all things school lunch!
