Based on Arkansas Law (Act 656), families who qualify for reduced price meals will receive free meals at school.

FREE/REDUCED LUNCH PROGRAM INFORMATION: 

The 2024-2025 Free and Reduced Price School Meals Family Application is now available for completion. 

eStem Public Charter Schools asks all families to fill out a school meals application. Students who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals can qualify for Summer EBT benefits when offered as well as many other benefits such as, fee waivers for college applications and admissions tests and afterschool academic/enrichment programs. The school meals application also helps the district and your child’s school receive much-needed education funding.

If one or more people in your household receives benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR), or if your child is classified as homeless, runaway, or migrant, then your child is categorically eligible for free school meals. You should receive notification from your child’s school that your child can receive free school meals. If you fall into one of these categories and have not been notified that your child is certified for free school meals, you should contact Stacy Awbrey, eStem PCS Child Nutrition Manager, at stacy.awbrey@estemschools.org.

Families can fill out and submit school meals applications at any point during the school year. Families also can submit a new application if something changes, such as a parent or other member of the household lost their job or had their hours reduced. If all of your children are enrolled in eStem Public Charter Schools, you only need to submit one application; however, families must fill out a new school meals application each school year.

If you need assistance with completing the application, contact Stacy Awbrey at 501-324-9200 or via email at stacy.awbrey@estemschools.org.

Applications are completely confidential, can be completed by all families enrolled in our school district, do not require a Social Security number, and have no effect on public charge.
