Application for the 2020-21 School Year

Washington is getting ready to issue Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) benefits for the 2020-21 school year. Learn More

The online application only takes a few minutes and can be completed using your smart phone, tablet or computer.  For questions or assistance, contact Nutrition Services at (425) 456-4507 during our normal business hours (7:00-3:30 pm).

If your student qualifies for free or reduced price school meals, they may be eligible for discounted fees or other services. Complete Part 5 of the online application (Sharing Information) to give permission to Nutrition Services to share school meal eligibility information with other school programs. If you need financial assistance with school fees, contact your office staff/cashier to let them know you are in need of assistance with specific items so discounts can be applied.

Parents will be notified by mail when their application has been processed.  Once received, applications for school meal benefits are typically processed within 10 days.  Families are responsible for any charges incurred on a school meal account prior to eligibility for free or reduced price meals being established for the school year.

Only complete one application per household.
