A new Meal Application is required each school year.
Parents are responsible for meal payments until application has been processed and eligibility has been determined.
Applications are also available under Meal Applications, school office, district office, school cafeteria and at the Nutrition Services Office.
Only one (1) application is needed per household. Students are qualified through the application process based on the total number of household members and the combined income of the household members, or qualify based on a CalFresh, CalWORKs, KinGAP or FDPIR case number. Students who are deemed a ‘Foster’ child would be eligible if their personal use income falls within the income guidelines.
Important: A new application must be completed each school year. Meal benefits begin on the day the application is processed by the Nutrition Services office and continue throughout the school year in which the application is approved, the summer, and approximately the first thirty days of the next school year. The approval process can take approximately 5-10 business days. Parents are asked to provide your child with lunch money or a lunch from home until you have received verification of your meal benefits.
If you have any questions on how to complete the application, please call (714) 985-8610 for assistance.
