On December 14th, 2022 Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced that the Arizona Department of Education will allocate $6.75 million in pandemic relief funds to waive fees for students qualifying for reduced-price school meals.
Beginning in January 2023, all students qualifying for reduced meals will qualify for free meals. If you feel you may qualify and have not filled out an application you may do so at this time. Also, if your financial situation has changed and you already filled out an application, you can reapply.
Whether you're applying for the first time, or reapplying, it's easier than ever to fill out an application! You can do it online in just minutes.
Step-by-step instructions are included in the video below. However, the first step is to register for a SchoolCafe account, and then you can apply.
These applications help schools qualify for federal funding for student programs and services such as:
- Reduced registration fees for testing
- Discounts for participation fees in sports
- Discounted rates on application fees for college
- Discounts on internet service rates

The Food Service Department here at Liberty is committed to providing appetizing meals while adhering to the American Dietary Guidelines that are specified by the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs. Menus are planned to ensure that when averaged over a week, meals comply with the American Dietary Guidelines for total fat, saturated fat and calories.
All district cafeterias operate under an offer versus serve method. This simply means that students are offered full meals in accordance with USDA requirements, but have the option of refusing part of the meal. This allows the child to take only the food items that they will eat and refuse the food items that they would discard. The student is required to take at least 3 full portions of 5 different food items (one of which must be a fruit or vegetable) at lunch and 3 of 4 at breakfast. Students are allowed only one portion of the main entree; however, they may request larger portion sizes of vegetables, fruits, and starches.You are invited to purchase a meal and eat breakfast or lunch with your child. Please be advised that it is against USDA regulations that an adult eat from a student tray. An adult must purchase their own meal. Please check in at the school office to obtain a Visitor Pass before eating with your student.
