Food and Child Nutrition Services




Your application is important for the district AND your family. You may also qualify for waived testing fees, reduced college tuition fees, state-funded pre-kindergarten, and Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) for remote learning if quarantined. This application will also provide our District with much-needed education funding, such as EISD being a Title One school district, providing more technology, supplies, and resources in the classroom.


Families can fill out and submit school meal applications at any point in the school year as well as submit a new application if something changes, such as a loss of job or decrease in work hours and or the birth of a child, etc.

Applications are intended for every family enrolled in EISD. They do not require a social security number and are completely confidential, you can send this back in an envelope or drop it off at the Administration Office if you prefer.


We appreciate you taking the time to complete this application.


Please turn in completed applications as early as possible.


Thank you,

Elkhart ISD – Child Nutrition Department
