Learning Center Provides Reduced Meal Prices
On Our Way Learning Center, 264 Beach 19 Street in Far Rockaway, will offer a free and reduced price meal (Free Milk) policy for their students.
Local school officials have adopted the following family criteria to determine eligibility:
Food Stamp/TANF/FDPIR Households: Households which currently include children who receive Food Stamps or Aid to Dependent Children (ADC) Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or FDPIR number and the signature of an adult household member, or provide a Direct Certification letter from the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. If the family does not list a food stamp, TANF, or FDPIR number for all children for whom they are applying, then the application must contain all the information as required for "other households."
Other Households: Households with incomes the same or below the amount of money listed for their family size may be eligible for and are urged to apply for free and/or reduced price meals (or free milk). They may do so by filling in the application forms sent home with a letter to parents. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year.
