Free & Reduced Meals

Children need healthy meals to learn. Lincoln County R-Ill School District offers healthy meals every school day. Knowing the current meal prices is beneficial in planning your child's meals. Reduced meal prices are $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch for both elementary and secondary students. Please review the District's Meal Charging Policy 5550.

To apply for free and reduced meals, complete the application located on the Free and Reduced Meals Application link on this page. Completed applications need to be returned to your child's school building office or the Registration Office at 951 W. College Street in Troy.

To view the eligible meals on the free and reduced program, click on the Eligible Meals link.

If you have questions regarding the Free and Reduced Meal Program, please call 636-462-4930 ext 50400.


Did you know that the Free and Reduced Meal application provides more than meals for LCR3 students? 

The District needs your help to ensure our students are receiving the support they need. The number of qualifying free and reduced meal applications that we receive also directly impacts the Federal funds received by the District, which helps provide important services such as: 

  • tutoring,
  • reading and math interventions,
  • social and emotional supports,
  • college application, ACT, SAT, and AP fees, and
  • dual enrollment tuition

To ensure all of our students receive the services they deserve, we are asking all families to complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application. 

Forms can be found on the left of this screen on a desktop or at the top of the page on a mobile device and returned to your child's teacher or building office. 

Thank you for your help in supporting all LCR3 students!
