ROISD WILL OFFER FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FOR ALL STUDENTS DURING THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR.
Red Oak ISD will utilize an option provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide free breakfast and lunch for all students throughout the 2021-22 school year.
All students will automatically qualify for free meals. Meal applications will not be needed to receive free meals for the 2021-22 school year.
HOUSEHOLD FAMILY DATA COLLECTION FORM:
To help ensure students receive all State funding and benefits available to their school and for appropriate comparisons for State accountability purposes, families will be asked to complete a Household Family Data Collection form during the enrollment process.
Students needing proof of eligibility for free and reduced price meals will also complete a Household Family Data Collection form.
P-EBT OUTREACH MATERIALS:
Enrolled students (up to 21 years of age) in families that temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals for the 2020-2021 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible to receive Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT).
P-EBT benefits can be used to buy food from any retailer that accepts the Lone Star Card.

How do I become eligible for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) for summer P-EBT?
Aug. 28, 2021, is the deadline for newly eligible families to complete and return the household application for free and reduced-price meals (NSLP form) to their school to be eligible for summer P-EBT. The deadline is Aug. 28 because it is the end of the summer P-EBT period. Forms received by schools after that date will not apply to summer P-EBT.
I have more questions about summer P-EBT. Who do I contact?
You can call the P-EBT Call Center at 833-442-1255, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Central time.
