we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household
member who signs the application. The last four digits of the social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list
a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program or Food Distribution Program on

application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price
meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We MAY share your eligibility information with education,
health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law
enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.
