MADISON, Wis. -

The Madison Metropolitan School District released guidelines for students eligible to receive free and reduced lunches.

The income scales are determined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and tell families if their student qualifies for the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2013-14 school year, officials said.

If the combined monthly gross income of all members is equal to or less than amounts listed in the table, children may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals, according to a release.

“Healthy meals and good nutrition enable our students to do their best learning,” Food and Nutrition Director Steve Youngbauer said in the release. “We are pleased that working together with the federal government, we are able to provide that daily nutrition to thousands of our students.”

To sign up, families need to fill out an application form, officials said.

Applications are available online or at school enrollment days, according to the release. Applications can be turned in at the student’s school any time during the school year.
