Free & Reduced Lunch Application

At Ferndale School District, we know how important it is for children to receive proper nutrition. Healthy meals have positive implications in student behavior, academic achievement, and school learning environment.

Through our school breakfast and lunch meal program, parents have the opportunity to ensure that their children receive a variety of delicious healthy foods that will nourish and sustain them throughout the school day.
