If my site is not area eligible, must I take applications for individual children to determine whether they are eligible for free or reduced price benefits?

Since your facility is already participating in the NSLP, it will have free and reduced price applications on file for day students. The eligibility determinations for those applications would apply for both the lunch and snack service under the NSLP. If an approved free or reduced price application is not on file, the facility will earn the paid rate of reimbursement for snacks served to that child unless the child’s family completes an application and is approved for free or reduced price benefits. If all residential students are free in your facility, the Statement of Facts or Master List document will verify that all snacks will be reimbursed at the free rate for those children.
