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.

The deadline to apply for P-EBT food benefits has been extended to July 31. Did your child receive free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program during the 2019-2020 school year? If so, your family may be eligible for this one-time food benefit. Visit the website to learn more about P-EBT. For questions regarding eligibility or if you need help applying, contact the P-EBT Call Center at (833) 613-6220. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits.


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):

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.  Paper applications are available on campuses, although applying online expedites the application process.
