Federal Government Allows Free Meal Waiver to Expire

Written by Meghan Cone

Back to Paid Meals in the 2022-23 School YearIn the 2022-23 school year, Frisco ISD cafeterias must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.

The federal waiver that allowed schools nationwide to offer free meals to all students regardless of income has expired.

School breakfast will be $2 in the new school year. Lunch will be $2.75 for elementary students and $3.75 for middle and high school students. 

These prices require students to choose a minimum of three of the following components, and one component must be a fruit or vegetable:

  • Protein

  • Low-fat milk

  • Whole grains

  • Fruits

  • Vegetables

Students who do not choose a complete meal or request additional servings will be charged a la carte prices. See the full price list

Families with low household income are encouraged to apply for meal benefits in order to receive free meals.
