Free | Reduced Meal Benefits


Waxahachie Independent School District offers free and reduced-price meals to families that qualify for the program.  Families seeking to apply for meal benefits need to complete an application every school year.  All students approved for free or reduced meals last year will remain on that status for the first 30 operating days of school or until a new application has been processed.  We encourage families that qualify for meal programs to apply online for quicker processing.  Incomplete applications cannot be processed.   Complete applications will be processed within 10 school days.  ** À la carte items are not considered as part of Federal Reimbursable Meals and will be individually charged to the student account.

Ways to apply

  • Online Application - preferred
  • Paper Application - available on campuses, although applying online expedites the application process.

Students attending Waxahachie ISD automatically qualify for free school meals.  Qualified students must be directly certified by the government (student names exist in government direct certification list):

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) 
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • Medicaid-Free
