Free and Reduced Lunch Program

The requirements for the Free and Reduced Priced Lunch Program are referenced in the quick links section of this page under Free and Reduced Lunch Application.  The packet will explain the requirements for acceptance to the program.  If you would like to apply, please download the attached application packet, complete it, and return it to either the District Office or your child’s school site.  Hard copy applications are also available at the District Office and each school site’s front office.
*Please note, as this is a federally funded program, we cannot accept extenuating circumstances to approve families for the program if they do not meet the specified qualifications.
For families who qualify for the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program, we will supply lunches at no or low costs to your student.  Students who qualify for the program will still have to use the online ordering system to place their meal orders.  Qualified families may order any entrée that is available on the particular day’s meal service.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the School Lunch Program, Free and Reduced Meal Price Applications, or Student Wellness, please contact Michelle Bothe in the Child Nutrition Services Office at (858) 755-9301 x3670.
