Free & Reduced Meal Benefits

Rio Rancho Public Schools is offering free meals to all enrolled students during the 2021-2022 school year under the COVID-19: Child Nutrition Response #85 Nationwide Waiver to Allow the Seamless Summer Option through School Year 2021-2022. All students within the district are eligible to receive free meals regardless of income for this school year.

Even though all student meals are free this school year, families who typically qualify for free and reduced student meals within Rio Rancho Public Schools, are still asked to apply through the standard process as you may qualify for other benefits associated with the program.
