Submission and Approvals of Meal Applications Benefit a School in Many Ways:


A student may be eligible to eat for free or at a reduced price. This will ensure that he/she is not hungry and is ready to learn.

The school may obtain money for Title One and Compensatory Education based on these approvals.

 Students attending Hondo ISD during the 2016-2017 school year who qualified for free or reduced-price meals are temporarily approved at the same status for the first 30 operating days of the 2017-2018 school year unless a new application has been turned in and processed.

The temporary status for these students will end on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. The meal status of children whose parents do not complete and submit a new application before the deadline will change to a full paid status. Beginning Wednesday, October 4, 2017, these students will be required to pay full price for their lunch. Hondo HS: $2.65 daily. Breakfast is free for all Hondo ISD students regardless of eligibility.

Parents may send money or a sack lunch for their children while their meal application is being processed. Applications may take up to 10 days from the day they are stamped received in the Office of Food & Nutrition Services to be processed. Parents are notified by letter sent home with the students of their households meal eligibility  status. Parents will be responsible to pay all charges to student meal accounts incurred before the application is processed.

When a new application is received, it supersedes any previous approval.

Parents may submit a completed application by bringing it to the Food & Nutrition Services Office at 2802 Ave Q in Hondo or send it with their child to be given to the teacher or to the campus cafeteria cashier. Meal applications will not be accepted on the serving line during breakfast and lunch service. The manager will accept meal applications away from the serving line during breakfast and lunch meal service.

We encourage ALL parents to submit completed meal applications as soon as possible for children to receive their meal benefits on the first day of school.

Please submit ONLY ONE application per household. Duplicate applications are discarded.
