Franklin Public Schools participates in the Free and Reduced Lunch program. Click here to see details.
All Free and Reduced Lunch applications must be submitted online after August 1st for the upcoming school year. Click here to apply.
If your financial situation changes at anytime throughout a school year you can submit a Free & Reduced Price School Meals Family Application.
In addition, Franklin Public Schools provides this Sharing Form with families that are eligible for free/reduced lunch, Direct Certified, or those requesting fees be waived due to financial hardship. This replaces the “Fee Waiver Form.”
The purpose of the Sharing Form is for the FPS District Office to request permission from families who would allow us to share that sensitive information with other particular departments or schools whereby that status may also help in other circumstances. Examples of this may include sharing your information with our schools to help with waiving fees or the high school student services office for the purpose of scholarships or college bound assistance.
This form needs to be completed yearly after August 1st. Once approved, you will be notified. Please direct any questions to FPS Auxiliary Services Coordinator Heidi Engel (414-525-7634)
Franklin Public Schools Food Service Department participates in the National School Lunch Program.
We receive some federal funds to supplement our self-funded department.
Our lunches are nutritious and well balanced staying within the federal guidelines of the meal program.
Each school has a production kitchen where the food is prepared daily for that school.
Check or cash payments can be sent to your child's school or with your student.
Online Payments for lunch fees is available from MySchoolBucks.
*NOTE: The maximum amount of money that can be added to your child's lunch account is up to $120 per transaction. If you'd like to add more than $120, you can do so by doing multiple transactions. During the month of August, there is no transaction fee.
Payments placed before 10:45am are available for use that day's lunch. Track Money Balance & View Purchase History for free. Apps are available for smartphones.

Franklin Public Schools’ last day of meal distribution is Wednesday, June 8, 2023. After that date all families have the option of going to other summer meal sites to pick up free meals for all children 18 and younger. Franklin Public Schools are not permitted to provide summer meals as we do not have a school where 50% of the students qualify for free or reduced meals. Based on the information we have as of Mon Thurs 6/1/23, these local districts will be serving summer meals:
