Data for Free and Reduced Price Meal Eligibility
This page provides free and reduced price meal eligibility data provided by the sponsors participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). In October of each year, Traditional and Provision 2 NSLP sponsors report the current enrollment (the highest daily number of students with access to meals served) and the number of students eligible for free and reduced price school meal benefits on their October claims for reimbursement. CEP eligible NSLP sponsors report Current Enrollment as the number of the enrolled students at the CEP site as of April of each year. The files are available in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
Please note the information is self-reported data that the sites report on the applications and claims for reimbursement in April and October of each year.
