We are honored to offer each child from a family that is approved for the ZPS “Free & Reduced Meal Program” a select amount of free programs each year. Details are below. Contact us with questions!

ZPS Free Meal Program Discounts: Each child that is approved for the Zeeland Public Schools “Free Meal Program” is eligible to receive free registration for two programs of their choice per fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).

ZPS Reduced Meal Program Discounts: Each child that is approved for the Zeeland Public Schools “Reduced Meal Program” is eligible to receive free registration for one program of their choice per fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).

Three Steps to Receive Free Programs:

  1. Apply for the ZPS “Free & Reduced Meal Program” through the ZPS Food Service.

  2. When applying, opt in for the “Special Considerations” (re: recreation, athletics) and approve your child's name being listed on the names we receive from ZPS Food Service (all names remain confidential).

  3. To register for your free programs, call or stop in our office and mention that you would like to receive the benefits from the “Free & Reduced Meal Program”, or show your current eligibility letter you received from ZPS Food Services. We will verify your information and enroll your children in the free program(s) of your choice. On July  1 each year, your free programs reset, as does the application process for eligibility for the ZPS Free & Reduced Meal Plan.

Being eligible for these discounts does not grant permission for automatic registration if a registration deadline is passed or if a program is full.
