Food Application Info

Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application

While school meals will be free to all students in School Year 2021-2022 regardless of your household’s income, we encourage you to complete an application for free or reduced-price meal benefits. The information provided on the school meal application may be used for other programs, such as Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), Federal and State funding for your school, reduced registration fees for academic tests, free or discounted fees for athletic programs, discounted rates for internet service, and many more!

Please use these instructions to help you fill out the school meal application for free or reduced-price school meals. You only need to submit one application per household, even if your children attend more than one school in Acorn Montessori Charter School. The application must be filled out completely to certify your children for free or reduced-price school meals.

Each step of the instructions is the same as the steps on the application. If at any time you are not sure what to do next, please contact Acorn Montessori Charter Schools; Chuck Watson at 928-772-5778 or cwatson@acornmontessori.com
