This bill would require the Department of Education to develop and make available to each school district and nonprofit nonpublic school participating in the National School Lunch Program or in a school breakfast program, an Internet-based online school meal application for eligible students to participate in these programs. Schools participating in the National School Lunch Program or in a school breakfast program would be encouraged to make the online school meal application available. A participating school district or nonprofit nonpublic school that implements the online school meal application would also be required to continue to make available paper applications. The bill would save participating school districts and nonprofit nonpublic schools money and time and increase efficiency by eliminating the manual entry of student information from thousands of paper applications. In addition, by making the application process more streamlined, parents or guardians are more likely to fill out the application in a timely manner. Finally, with the privacy of online applications, more eligible students may apply to the programs as a result.
