Indiana Releases Free and Reduced Lunch Pricing Guidelines

By Andrew Pillow

Indiana released the pricing guidelines around free and reduced lunch. Students from households that meet the federal guidelines are able to receive free and reduced lunch.

It also includes provisions for homeless, foster, and migrant children.
