    Application and information in English and Spanish are at this end of the page
    Students who attended Ewing Twp.

Parents/Guardians may apply on-line by following the link below.  Your meal status will be determined immediately.  A fill-to-print application is also available below.   Additionally, applications will be mailed to each household in August .  Interested parents/guardians should complete one application for all the children in their household. Completed paper applications should be returned to the Food Service Office.
