Food Services

The federal Free School Meal Program will expire at the end of Summer 2022.  During the pandemic, Congress expanded the program so that no child had to pay for school meals.


For the 2022 – 2023 school year, households must submit a Free/Reduced Meal Benefits application and meet federal income requirements to qualify for free/reduced price meals.  ONLY 1 application per household for all students attending International School of Louisiana.
 
We are asking all families to apply for the federally funded free and reduced school meals program.  Even if you think you will not qualify, we ask that you apply.  This information is critical to our school’s success and support. The free and reduced lunch percentages enable public schools to qualify for other grants and funding opportunities to support families.
Visit the Food Services page for the following: 
  • Application for Free/Reduced Meal Benefits
  • ISL Café Menu
  • Special diet requests for the 2022-2023 School year must be supported by a signed diet prescription form by a licensed medical authority.  Menu substitutions will be made for students with a documented medical needs. For a copy click here
