• 2021-2022 School Meal Information

Free & Reduced Meals

  • This school year, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD can offer healthy meals every school day to all students at no cost. Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.

    Free & Reduced Meals application

  • No application is necessary for the 2021-2022 school year, but qualifying families may already apply for free or reduced meals in 2022-2023.

Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)

  • The Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) helped millions of Texas children who temporarily lost access to free school meals during the 2020-2021 school year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently added a one-time summer P-EBT summer benefit. Eligible families may be able to receive an additional $375 to supplement their family’s budget during the covered summer period

    Families that submit a household application before Aug. 28 and meet one of the following criteria may receive the $375 Summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) through a direct distribution from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC):

    • Are newly eligible for P-EBT based on a change in family income after June 30, 2021 or are income eligible and did not have a household application on file during the 2020-2021 school year.
    • Have not yet applied for P-EBT and have children who were certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and enrolled in an NSLP school in the last month of the 2020-2021 school year. (Note: These families must submit applications through MyTexasBenefits.)
