Apply for educational benefits for the 2022-23 school year

(08/11/2022) All Anoka-Hennepin families are encouraged to apply for the educational benefits program for the upcoming school year. A new application must be submitted each school year. 

By completing this application, students may receive free or reduced fees for transportation, meals, academic, and co-curricular activities. Please visit to set up, or log in to your SchoolCafe account, and complete an application for free or reduced-price meal and other benefits.

The educational benefits program not only ensures that students have access to nutritious meals, it also provides critical federal funding for schools. 

As a reminder, the federal subsidy to provide free school meals for every student will no longer be available this school year.

Only one application is needed per household. Please contact the child nutrition department with any questions or assistance at 763-506-1240 or
