Cafeteria Program

FREE MEALS AVAILABLE TO ALL STUDENTS

Free meals are available to all students for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year due to California’s extension of the Seamless Summer food distribution program.  Any child (under 18) in our community may access meals by coming to the distribution point.  Parents and guardians may receive food on behalf of their children.

For the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, direct certification or NSLP application approval is not required for students to receive free meals.  Our new Alternative Household Income form which temporarily replaces the normal NSLP application is also not required for access to free meals.

We are, however, asking families who have not been directly certified for free or reduced meals or had a regular NSLP application approved already this year to fill out the short and easy replacement form which will connect students with other benefits besides meals such as fee reductions or waivers for pre-college testing, enhanced eligibility for scholarships, and benefits to the school such as enhanced technology and support services.  Here is a link to the form:   Alternative Household Income Form

For families with no online accessibility, this form is also available in our office in paper form, and parents may also elect to do the form over the phone with NSLP Application
