Meal Benefits Application
2023-24 School Year Update: We will continue to have meal benefit applications with the same income guidelines in accordance with all Federal applications. If you were already receiving meal benefits last school year, those will continue through the first 30 days of SY 23-24, and if you were DIRECT CERTIFIED through the state last year, you will continue to be so. We will process those people in late July, and we will send you an email to confirm your benefits.
A new application for all other households who want to take advantage of these benefits will need to be filled out by September 25th. This MUST be completed online through the new LINQ Connect Portal.
Free/Reduced Meal Application
Families who wish to apply for free or reduced price meals need to complete a new Free and Reduced Price Meal Application every school year. The free/reduced price eligibility of our returning students is approved through the first 30 days of the new school year. After the first 30 days the student's previous eligibility will expire, and a new application will need to be completed. The Free and Reduced Price Meal Application should be filled out ONLINE ONLY through the LINQ Connect Portal. All information provided should be accurate and correct to the best of your knowledge.
Online application only. Register for an account and complete the Meal Application Form here: https://linqconnect.com/
Students attending Eanes ISD automatically qualify for free school meals if receiving:
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
- Medicaid Benefits
The information retained for this program is kept confidential. Students will keep their same account number so they are not identified when they come through the cafeteria line.
