2022-23 Educational Benefits Application

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! 

Student identification numbers can be found in the parent portal. Sign in to the parent portal here and click today on the left side of the screen. Your student's name and student ID will appear. If you have more than one student, select them from the upper right corner of your screen. If you need assistance with logging in to your parent portal email: registrar@rdale.org

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.

  1. Visit TITAN K-12 Family Portal.

  2. Click on Apply for Meals Today (log in not required).

  3. Follow the instructions to complete your online application.

An eligibility notice letter will be sent out via USPS mail or email within 10 business days. 

If you would like a paper copy of the application for educational benefits, available in English, Spanish, and Somali, or if you have questions, please call Danielle Kiminski  at 763-504-8050 or email at danielle_kiminski@rdale.org.

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.
