Subsidized School Lunch Eligibility is reported in the Sustainability Dashboard. Indicators in the Sustainability Dashboard focus on economic, environmental, and community health in the Lake Tahoe Region.
Free and Reduced Priced Meals (FRPM) are provided to low-income children before school, during school, after school and over the summer through the National School Lunch Program. Participation in this federally subsidized school lunch program requires children to come from low-income families. Therefore, the percent of students eligible for the subsidized school lunch program is a direct measure of student and family poverty levels in the Lake Tahoe Region.
This indicator measures the percentage of students eligible for free and reduced priced meals through the National School Lunch Program in Tahoe Basin public schools (K-12 grade). Students must come from families with incomes at or below 130 percent of the poverty level to be eligible.
