2. WHO CAN GET FREE MILK?If your school participates in the Special Milk Program for half day kindergarteners, your kindergarten child may be eligible for free milk. Children who buy extra milk with a meal or if they eat breakfast or lunch and have an afternoon milk break, they are not eligible to receive free milk.

 

3. HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILDREN QUALIFY AS HOMELESS, MIGRANT, OR RUNAWAY?Do the members of your household lack a permanent address? Are you staying together in a shelter, hotel, or other temporary housing arrangement? Does your family relocate on a seasonal basis? Are any children living with you who have chosen to leave their prior family or household? If you believe children in your household meet these descriptions and haven’t been told your children will get free meals, please call or e-mail Courtney Hippen at, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

4. What IF WE HAVE FOSTER CHILDREN? Households with foster and non-foster children may choose to include the foster child as a household member, as this may help other children in the household qualify for benefits. If the foster family is not eligible for free or reduced price meal benefits, that does not prevent a foster child from receiving free meal benefits.

 

5. DO I NEED TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION FOR EACH CHILD?No. Use one Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to: Webster City Schools Foodservice Department,       Attn: Todd Hartnett, PO Box 10, Webster City, IA 50595.

 

6. SHOULD I FILL OUT AN APPLICATION IF I RECEIVED A LETTER THIS SCHOOL YEAR SAYING MY CHILDREN ARE ALREADY APPROVED FOR FREE MEALS?No, but please read the letter you got carefully and follow the instructions. If any children in your household were missing from your eligibility notification, contact: Todd Hartnett, Foodservice Director, 515.832.9228, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. immediately as eligibility for free meals is extended to all school age children in a household. If you did not receive a letter from the school, but received a Free Lunch Notice from DHS, submit this letter to your children’s school. You may add any students living in your household who are not listed.

 

7. MY CHILD’S APPLICATION WAS APPROVED LAST YEAR. DO I NEED TO FILL OUT A NEW ONE?Yes. Your child’s application is only good for that school year and for the first few days of this school year, through 9/20/2017. You must send in a new application unless the school told you that your child is eligible for the new school year. When the carry-over period ends, unless you are notified that your children will receive free meals or you submit an application that is approved, the children must pay full price for school meals.

 

8. I GET WIC. CAN MY CHILDREN GET FREE MEALS? Children in households participating in WIC may be eligible for free or reduced price meals. Please send in an application.

 

9. WILL THE INFORMATION I GIVE BE CHECKED? Yes. We may also ask you to send written proof of the household income you report. You are not required to provide proof with your application.

 

10. IF I DON’T QUALIFY NOW, MAY I APPLY LATER?Yes, you may apply at any time during the school year. For example, children with a parent or guardian who becomes unemployed may become eligible for free or reduced price meals if the household income drops below the income limit, if your household size goes up, or if you start getting Food Assistance, FIP or other benefits.

 

11. WHAT IF I DISAGREE WITH THE SCHOOL’S DECISION ABOUT MY APPLICATION? You should talk to school officials. You also may ask for a hearing by calling or writing to: Mike Sherwood, PO BOX 10, Webster City, IA 50595 or call 515.832.9200

 

12. MAY I APPLY IF SOMEONE IN MY HOUSEHOLD IS NOT A U.S. CITIZEN? Yes. You, your children, or other household members do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply for free or reduced price meals.

 

13. WHAT IF MY INCOME IS NOT ALWAYS THE SAME? List the amount that you normally receive. For example, if you normally make $1000 each month, but you missed some work last month and only made $900, put down that you made $1000 per month. If you normally get overtime, include it, but do not include it if you only work overtime sometimes. If you have lost a job or had your hours or wages reduced, use your current income.

 

14. WHAT IF SOME HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS HAVE NO INCOME TO REPORT? Household members may not receive some types of income we ask you to report on the application, or may not receive income at all. Whenever this happens please write a 0 in the field. However, if any income fields are left empty or blank, those will also be counted as zeroes. Please be careful when leaving income fields blank, as we will assume you meant to do so.

 

15. WE ARE IN THE MILITARY. DO WE REPORT OUR INCOME DIFFERENTLY? Your basic pay and cash bonuses must be reported as income. If you get any cash value allowances for off-base housing, food, or clothing, or receive Family Subsistence Supplemental Allowance payments, it must also be included as income. However if your housing is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, do not include your housing allowance as income. There are currently no active Military Housing Projects in Iowa as found on Active Military Housing Projects. Any additional combat pay resulting from deployment is also excluded from income.

 

16. WHAT IF THERE ISN’T ENOUGH SPACE ON THE APPLICATION FOR MY FAMILY? List any additional household members on a Supplemental Worksheet, and attach it to your application. Contact Todd Hartnett, Foodservice Director at 515.832.9228 to receive a Supplemental Worksheet.

 

17. MY FAMILY NEEDS MORE HELP. ARE THERE OTHER PROGRAMS WE MIGHT APPLY FOR? To find out how to apply for Food Assistance or other assistance benefits, contact your local assistance office or call 1-877-347-5678. Your children may be eligible for hawk-i (children’s health insurance) or a waiver of school fees. Read the information on the back of the Application for hawk-i information. A school waiver form is available from your school.

 

18. CAN CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES GET FOOD SUBSTITUTIONS? If a child has a disability, as determined by a licensed medical professional, and the disability prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, the school will make substitutions prescribed by the licensed medical professional. If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal. Please note, however, that the school is not required to make a substitution for a food allergy, unless it meets the definition of disability. Please call the school for further information.

If you have other questions or need help, call 515.832.9228.

Sincerely,

Todd Hartnett, Foodservice Director

Households may be eligible for free or reduced price meal benefits one of four ways listed below.

 

  1. Households whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for reduced price meals or free meals, if they complete an Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals/Milk. Households may complete one application listing all children and return it to your child’s school. When completing an application, only the last four digits of the social security number of the household’s primary wage earner or another adult household member is needed.
  2. Food Assistance households and children receiving benefits under the Family Investment Program (FIP) are eligible for free meals. Most children from Food Assistance and FIP households will be qualified for free meals automatically. These households will receive a letter from their children’s schools notifying them of their benefits. Households that receive a letter from the school need to do nothing more for their children to receive free meals. No further application is necessary.       If any children were not listed on the notice of eligibility, the household should contact the school to have free meal benefits extended to them.
  3. Some Food Assistance and FIP households will receive a letter from the Department of Human Services (DHS) which will qualify the children listed on the letter for free meals. Parents must take this letter to the child’s school to receive free meals.      
  4. Food Assistance or FIP households receiving benefits that do not receive a letter from DHS must complete an application with the abbreviated information as indicated on the application and instructions, for their children to receive free meals. When the application lists an Assistance Program’s case number for any household member, eligibility for free benefits is extended to all children in a household.

 

Eligibility from the previous year will continue within the same school for up to 30 operating days into the new school year. When the carry-over period ends, unless the household is notified that their children are directly certified or the household submits an application that is approved, the children must pay full price for school meals and the school will not send a reminder or a notice of expired eligibility. An application cannot be approved unless complete eligibility information is submitted. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year. If a family member becomes unemployed the family should contact the school to complete an application. Households notified of their children’s eligibility must contact the school if the household chooses to decline the free meal benefits.

Foster children are eligible for free meal benefits. Some foster children will be qualified for free meals automatically through the State Direct Certification process. Their host family will receive notification of these benefits. Families that receive this notification from the school need to do nothing more for their foster children to receive free meals. If a family has foster children living with them and does not receive notification and wishes to apply for such meals, instructions for making application for such children are contained on the application form. A foster child may be included as a member of the foster family if the foster family chooses to also apply for benefits for other children. Including children in foster care as household members may help other children in the household qualify for benefits. If the foster family is not eligible for free or reduced price meal benefits, it does not prevent a foster child from receiving benefits. Special Supplement Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) participants may be eligible for free or reduced price meals based on a completed application.

When known by the school, households will be notified of any child eligible for free meals if the children are enrolled in the Head Start/Even Start Program or are considered homeless, migrant or runaway. If any children are not listed on the notice of eligibility, contact the school for assistance in receiving benefits. If households are dissatisfied with the application approval done by the officials, they may make a formal appeal either orally or in writing to the school’s designated hearing official. The Policy Statement on file at the school contains an outline of the hearing procedure. School officials may verify the information in the application, and that deliberate misrepresentation of information may subject the applicant to prosecution under applicable State and Federal criminal statutes. Households should contact their local school for additional information.

There will be no discrimination against individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) in the school meal programs.

Nondiscrimination Statement: This explains what to do if you believe you have been treated unfairly.

In accordance with Federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.

Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g. Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.

To file a program complaint of discrimination, complete the USDA Program Discrimination Complaint Form, (AD-3027) found online at: http://www.ascr.usda.gov/complaint_filing_cust.html, and at any USDA office, or write a letter addressed to USDA and provide in the letter all of the information requested in the form. To request a copy of the complaint form, call (866) 632-9992. Submit your completed form or letter to USDA by:

12. ¿PUEDO HACER UNA SOLICITUD SI ALGUIEN EN MI HOGAR NO ES CIUDADANO DE LOS EE.UU.? Sí. Usted, sus hijos u otros miembros del hogar no tienen que ser ciudadanos americanos para solicitar comidas gratis o a precio reducido.

 

13. ¿QUÉ PASA SI MIS INGRESOS NO SIEMPRE SON IGUALES? Enumere la cantidad que recibe normalmente. Por ejemplo, si normalmente recibe $ 1000 al mes, pero se ausentó del trabajo el mes pasado y solo recibió $ 900, escriba que recibe $ 1000 por mes. Si normalmente trabaja horas extras, inclúyalas, pero no lo haga si sólo trabaja horas extras a veces. Si perdió su empleo o las horas o salarios fuer reducidos, use sus ingresos actuales.

 

14. ¿QUÉ SI ALGUNOS DE LOS MIEMBROS DEL HOGAR NO TIENEN INGRESOS QUE REPORTAR? Los miembros del hogar no pueden recibir algunos tipos de ingresos que le pedimos que reporte en la solicitud, o pueden no recibir ingreso alguno. Cada vez que esto suceda por favor escriba un 0 en el campo. Sin embargo, si cualquiera de los campos de ingreso queda vacíos o en blanco, se contarán como en ceros. Por favor tenga cuidado al salir campos de ingresos en blanco, porque asumiremos que esa era su intención.

 

15. ESTAMOS EN LAS FUERZAS MILITARES. ¿REPORTAMOS NUESTROS INGRESOS DE UNA FORMA DIFERENTE? Debe reportar su salario y bonos en efectivo como ingresos. Si recibe asignaciones en efectivo para vivienda fuera de la base, alimentos o ropa, o recibe pagos de Asignaciones Suplementarias de Subsistencia Familiar, esto también lo debe incluir como ingreso. Sin embargo, si su vivienda es parte de la Iniciativa de Privatización de Viviendas para Militares, usted no debe incluir el subsidio para vivienda como ingreso. En este momento no hay activos Proyectos de Vivienda Militar en Iowa como se encuentran en Proyectos Activos de Vivienda Militar. Cualquier pago adicional de combate, resultante de despliegues, también queda excluido de los ingresos.

 

16. ¿QUÉ HAGO SI NO HAY SUFICIENTE ESPACIO PARA MI FAMILIA EN LA SOLICITUD? Todos los miembros del hogar adicionales escríbalos en una Hoja de Trabajo Suplementario, y adjúntela a su solicitud. Contacte a Todd Hartnett, Foodservice Director at 515.832.9228 para recibir una Hoja de Trabajo Suplementario.

 

17/ MI FAMILIA NECESITA MÁS AYUDA. ¿HAY OTROS PROGRAMAS QUE PODAMOS SOLICITAR? Para conocer cómo solicitar Asistencia de Alimentos u otros beneficios de asistencia, contacte a su oficina de asistencia local o llame al 1-877-347-5678. Sus hijos pueden ser elegibles para hawk-i (seguro de salud para niños) o una exención de costos de estudio. Lea la información en el respaldo de la solicitud para conocer información acerca de hawk-i. En su escuela encontrará un formulario de exención de costos de estudio.

 

18. ¿LOS NIÑOS CON DISCAPACIDADES PUEDEN RECIBIR SUSTITUCIONES DE ALIMENTOS? Si un niño tiene una discapacidad, de acuerdo por lo indicado por un profesional médico licenciado, y la discapacidad le impide consumir los alimentos regulares de la escuela, la escuela hará substituciones prescritas por el profesional médico licenciado. Si es necesaria una sustitución, no habrá ningún cargo adicional por la comida. Sin embargo, tenga en cuenta que la escuela no está obligada a realizar cambios por alergias a los alimentos, a menos que cumpla con la definición de discapacidad. Por favor llame a la escuela para tener mayor información.
