Cafeteria Program

Free meals are available to all students for the 2022-23 school year due to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s commitment to pay for school meals for all students through the end of the current school year.   However, for students who are not notified that they are directly certified for free or reduced meals (a letter will be sent within the first two weeks of school to those families who are directly certified through county databases), we are asking families to submit NLSP applications.  Here is why:

The traditional National School Lunch Program (NSLP) form allows for students to qualify for more than just meals, which may provide the additional funding for students listed below. 

  • Academic Assistance
  • Learning Materials
  • Counseling
  • Technology Tools
  • Reduced Cost of College Applications
Click on this link to access the digital 2022-23 Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals form for NHUHSD. You can fill it out and sign and submit it digitally. This form is intended for families who have not been notified by letter this year that they have been directly certified to receive free or reduced meals.  If you do not have access to a device, please fill out the paper copy that is sent by a mailed letter during the second week of school or pick up a paper copy from the Attendance Office. Questions about the application process can be directed to Laurie Edwards at 839-6402.
