Lunch Application Logo  
Parents/guardians of Iredell-Statesville Schools can apply online for their children to receive free or reduced-price school meals.  Their application will be sent from a secure website directly to the Child Nutrition department at Iredell-Statesville Schools.  This will eliminate the need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced.
"We are so excited to continue implementing this technology for our students," Tina Wilson, Child Nutrition Director for I-SS explained.  "We know this online process has allowed for these applications to be processed quicker and with less error so that the students that are approved will be able to enjoy their free or reduced-price meals sooner."
Iredell-Statesville Schools' current free and reduced school meal percentage is 47%.  
"Our hope is that students who need these services will be able to receive them.  This online application is just removing another barrier," Wilson added.
The online application can be accessed at  Simply go to the website and click "Apply Now."  The application has been designed to make it easy for parents/guardians to know exactly what information they need to provide and to guide them through the process.  You must click "Submit" for the application to be processed.  Once their application has been submitted, they will receive a confirmation email.  The district office will determine their eligibility and will mail them a letter with the results.

If parents/guardians have already received a letter telling them that their child was pre-approved for meal benefits for the 2018-2019 school year, they do not need to reapply.  Please make sure all of the school-aged children living in your household are listed on the approval letter.  If not, please contact Joan Newland at 704-873-2175.
