McKinney, Texas – McKinney ISD food services is encouraging parents of students who may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals to apply now for the current 2021-2022 school year.

Although no application or eligibility determination was required for students to receive free meals for 2021–2022, income eligibility requirements will likely resume in the 2022–2023 school year.

In light of that, McKinney ISD will process household applications during the current school year to ensure that eligible students will receive free or reduced-price meals during the first 30 days of the 2022–2023 school year while 2022–2023 applications are still being processed.

Families that meet eligibility requirements for free or reduced-price meals also qualify to receive Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P–EBT) benefits, which help families purchase food for home through the use of an electronic debit card. P–EBT is administered through Texas Health and Human Services.

Starting in August 2022, McKinney ISD will begin distributing letters to the households of children in the district about these 2022–2023 eligibility benefits and actions households need to take to apply. Applications also are available at 510 Heard St. McKinney, TX-75069.

Ahora es el momento de solicitar los beneficios de comidas gratis o de precio reducido para el año escolar actual 2021-2022

McKinney, Texas – Los servicios de alimentos de McKinney ISD están animando a los padres de estudiantes que pueden calificar para comidas gratis o a precio reducido a solicitar ahora el año escolar actual de 2021-2022.

Aunque no se requirió una solicitud o una determinación de elegibilidad para que los estudiantes recibieran comidas gratis para 2021-2022, los requisitos de elegibilidad de ingresos probablemente se reanudarán en el año escolar 2022-2023.

A la luz de eso, McKinney ISD procesará las solicitudes de los hogares durante el año escolar en curso para garantizar que los estudiantes elegibles reciban comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido durante los primeros 30 días del año escolar 2022-2023, mientras que las solicitudes de 2022-2023 aún se están procesando.

Las familias que cumplen con los requisitos de elegibilidad para recibir comidas gratis o a precio reducido también califican para recibir los beneficios de transferencia electrónica de beneficios pandémicos (P – EBT), que ayudan a las familias a comprar alimentos para el hogar mediante el uso de una tarjeta de débito electrónica. P – EBT se administra a través de Servicios Humanos y de Salud de Texas.

A partir de agosto de 2022, McKinney ISD comenzará a distribuir cartas a los hogares de los niños en el distrito sobre estos beneficios de elegibilidad de 2022–2023 y las acciones que los hogares deben tomar para presentar una solicitud. Las solicitudes también están disponibles en 510 Heard St. McKinney, TX-75069.
