Every family, every year. We ask that ALL families with children enrolled with Robbinsdale Area Schools complete an Application for Educational Benefits each year. It’s quick and easy.
There will be several important changes to meals at Robbinsdale Area Schools starting in fall 2022. Due to the expiration of federal USDA waivers, effective 2022/2023 school year breakfast and lunches will no longer be free for all students. Kindergarten students receive breakfast for free via the state of Minnesota. Application for Educational Benefits for the 2022/2023 school year will be available in mid-July.
In addition, students will need to enter their PIN each time they have a school breakfast or school lunch. Every student’s PIN is the same as their school identification number. Families, please help your student get ready for this change by learning their PIN! If you do not know your student’s school ID, please contact the secretary at your student’s school. You can also find your student’s PIN number by setting up an account through the TITAN K-12 Family Portal.
The Application for Educational Benefits (formerly known as Free and Reduced) can be completed at TITAN K-12 Family Portal.

Additional Educational Benefit Application Information
Families should fill out a new application every year.
The Application for Educational Benefits used to be called the “free and reduced lunch” form.
Educational Benefit thresholds are higher than in some programs, so many families are surprised to find they do qualify.
