Is an Iowa Eligibility Application required to qualify a foster child for free meals?

Answer: 

No, a foster child may be directly certified by the foster agency for free meals.  Documentation from the foster agency can take the place of the Iowa Eligibility Application.  The foster child’s eligibility for free meals does not transfer to the other members of the household.
