Free Meals for the 2021-22 School Year

The Puyallup School District will provide free breakfast and lunch at all school sites for the 2021-22 school year due to a USDA-issued waiver. The nationwide USDA waiver allows for free meals for the 2021-22 school year only.

Families that previously qualified for free or reduced-priced meal benefits will be notified to reapply when school starts to continue receiving district supported fee reductions and benefits. Benefits and reduced fees available to families who qualify for free and reduced meals include PEBT, ASB cards, laptop protection, and athletic fees.

Those who believe they may qualify, should also apply for meal benefits when school starts to receive available fee reductions.
