Families wishing to register for the program must log in or create an account on FBISD’s SchoolCafe app, which can also be found online at schoolcafe. com/fbisd.

In order to qualify for free or reduced-cost meals, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Household income is at or below the income eligibility levels, or
  • Household receives Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR), or
  • Children with the status as a foster child, homeless, runaway, migrant farm worker or displaced by a declared disaster, or enrolled in the Head Start program.

Applications will be accepted throughout the upcoming school year, according to the district. FBISD plans to start school Aug. 17.
