We are excited that Arlington ISD is offering free breakfast and lunch to our students this year! You do not need to submit a free and reduced-price meal application for your child to receive this benefit. However, we do need your help!  

To help ensure our students receive all federal and state funding available to our schools and for appropriate comparisons for state accountability purposes, we are asking you to complete a Household Family Data Collection form. By completing this form, you can help ensure we have appropriate funding for teachers and students.

The Household Family Data Collection form typically takes less than ten minutes to complete. If you would like assistance completing the form, please contact the Food and Nutrition Services office at 682-867-7880. We will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for completing the Household Family Data Collection form! You are helping us make sure we receive all the federal and state funding available to us.

Children attending this school, which is operating the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), will receive free breakfast and lunch without families completing the free and reduced-price meal application. To help ensure students receive all State funding and benefits available to their school and for appropriate comparisons for State accountability purposes, families with children at a school operating CEP will be asked to complete a Household Family Data Collection form.
