- Food Services Free & Reduced
In compliance with new federal guidelines, all district students receive an Iowa Eligibility application at registration time (either in registration folders or distributed in some other way).
District parents who meet the requirements may submit this confidential application for free or reduced price breakfast and lunches. Only one application per family is needed. The computer tracks all purchases – not even the cashier knows the student’s eligibility status.
After you have filled out the form online, please print it (you will not be able to save the document unless you have Adobe Acrobat) and mail or return the form to:
DeeAnn Schriener, Food Service Director, 1100 Linn St, Atlantic, Iowa 50022 or if you have questions please call the Central Office, at 712-243-5369.

Children need healthy meals to learn. Atlantic Community School District offers healthy meals every school day. Your child(en) may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals.
Households: Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals if your household income falls within the limits.
Privacy Act Statement: This explains how we will use the information you give us.
The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do not, we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. The social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or if you list a Food Assistance number, or Family Investment Program number, or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We MAY share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
