Abstract This manual contains information on determining eligibility for free and reduced price meals for the National School Lunch Program (including commodity schools and the After School Snack Program); and the School Breakfast Program. It is also applicable to the Special Milk Program for Children when schools and institutions serve free milk to eligible children. While this eligibility guidance directly addresses the school programs, it is also generally applicable to the Child and Adult Care Food Program and the Summer Food Service Program when individual children's eligibility must be established. These programs are collectively considered the Child Nutrition Programs.
