The District cannot accept old applications. Request for Financial Assistance/Waiver of Student Fees is due by November 15, 2018.

In mid-July, over 1,000 notification letters were mailed out to students who were automatically certified for free lunches last year (2017-18). Families who have received this letter DO NOT need to apply. However, if a letter is received for one child and there are other students in the family who did not receive a letter, please call the District 205 Food Service Office at 630-617-2436 to provide further information. Be sure to keep this letter, as you may need it for other programs and benefits (Comcast Internet Essentials, Park District programs, etc.).
