Emergency Lunch Fund Application

Many families in Grand County do not qualify for free meals based on income, but don't make enough money to comfortably provide breakfast and/or lunch to their school-age children. 
If your family or children meet any of the following situations you may be eligible for free or reduced priced meals, regardless of income: 
  • Families or children who participate in SNAP, FDPIR, or TANF 
  • Families or children who are living in motels, hotels, hostels, RVs, campgrounds, emergency or transitional shelters, abandoned buildings, cars, parks, or any other public or private places not designed or ordinarily used as permanent lodging.
  • Families or children who are sharing the housing of another person due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason.
  • A child who is formally placed by the court into foster care. 
  • A child who is identified as a runaway and receiving assistance from a program under the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act.
  • Families or children considered migrant agricultural workers. 
If your family or children do not meet any of those situations, please complete this application.  GCSD often has some funds available from generous donors to help pay for student meals.  We cannot apply emergency lunch funds to your student's account without a completed Emergency Lunch Fund Application AND a completed Meal Benefits (Free & Reduced) Application.  
We are happy to work with your family to ensure your students receive nutritious meals at school and connect you with community resources, if needed.  If you find that your family is struggling to provide meals for your children, please contact:
