Gallatin Gateway School offers qualifying families a free lunch program and also a reduced lunch program. These forms are mailed to families in August, but if your family needs a new form please stop by the office. These forms are confidential, and we encourage everyone to apply even if you think you may not qualify. Also, if at any time during the year your family has financial hardships please stop by and complete the form. Free and reduced lunch can be used all year long, or month-to-month depending on your family's needs. Many grants we apply for are awarded to schools based on the number of families that qualify for our breakfast/lunch program. Please remember that families who qualify don't necessarily need to participate in the program for the school to earn credit toward the grant.

School breakfast resulted in significant: increases in math grades, decreases in student absences, decreases in student tardiness and decreases in ratings of psychosocial problems.

Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School “The Relationship of School Breakfast to Psychosocial and Academic Functioning” (search “past issues” for 1998 vol. 152 no. 9)
