Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year.

Income Eligibility:

An adult in the household must complete an application and return it to their student’s cafeteria manager. Applicant must provide the names of all household members; amount, frequency and source of current information for each household member; and the last four digits of the Social Security number of the adult household member who signs the application.

If the applicant does not have a Social Security number check the box for ‘No Social Security Number.’

Comal ISD is working with local agencies to identify all children who are categorically and program eligible.

The district’s Child Nutrition Department will notify households of children who do not need to complete an application.
