Free Meals For Students

In school year 2022-23, all students can join us for breakfast and lunch at no cost. Meals are served out of our new Quick Cafes at each school site. Students will be required to use their unique student ID number for all transactions.  All students will be provided with a scan card for breakfast and lunch.  This card will record how many breakfasts and lunches we serve and will also identify student's food allergens.  
 
We are asking families that have been qualified for free and reduced meals in the past, or if you believe you would qualify, to complete the Free and Reduced Meal Application to qualify for Federal and State programs that benefit socio-economically disadvantaged students. Click here for a paper application.  If you would like to apply electronically, please click here (this link coming soon!).
 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the School Lunch Program, Free and Reduced Meal Applications, or Student Wellness, please contact Michelle Bothe in the Child Nutrition Services Office at (858) 755-9301 x3670.
