Meal Benefits

Dear Ringgold Parents and Guardians,


Recently COVID-19 relief packages were passed by the United States Congress that contain numerous benefits for families financially impacted by the pandemic. Some of these benefits are available to students who are eligible for free or reduced price school meals.


If you believe your school-aged child(ren) may qualify for free or reduced price meals this school year and have not yet submitted an application for free or reduced price meals to the school, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. You may apply for meal benefits by visiting  The application will be used only to determine which benefits your child and/or household may be eligible to receive.


Please be aware that applying for free or reduced price meal benefits will NOT impact meals that your child(ren) currently receive through the school. ALL children will continue to receive meals for FREE throughout the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year regardless of their meal benefit eligibility.


If you have any questions, or if you have moved or recently changed your address, please reach out to the Food Service Office at the contact information listed below.
