Big changes are coming to Helena Public Schools school breakfast and lunch program. Pandemic funding for free meals has ended and – starting this fall – there will be a charge for all student meals unless the student qualifies for Free and Reduced Lunch. 

If you need assistance paying for your child’s meal costs, now is the time to apply for the Free and Reduced Lunch program. Visit HSD food services to get started. 

 When you apply for meal assistance, you not only help your family; you also help your school receive more funding for important student services like textbooks, and math and literacy programs.   

If you’re concerned about paying your child’s meal costs, don’t wait until the first day of school. Apply now at or call Sharon Jensen at 406-324-2042. By signing up, you feed your family and support your school.
