Free Meals for All!

We are excited to announce that meals will continue to be free during the 2024-2025 school year.  The state of California is the first state to pass the Universal Free Meals Program.  Adult meals, non-student meals, and additional meals will be $6.00 for lunch and $4.00 for breakfast.

Meal Applications

Although meals are free for students in the state of California, school districts are still required to collect meal applications .  All households will be asked to fill out the Education and Nutrition Benefit Form (similar to the free/reduced meal application).  The information collected from the form is critical for district and state funding.  It will help us put money back into the classroom and it will increase the longevity of funding for the Universal Free Meals Program.  Your family may also qualify for additional benefits like free afterschool care or internet discounts. Please contact Food Services or your school office for assistance in completing the application. Food Services Office 805-681-1200 ext. 2247.


Students will have two opportunities to get school breakfast this year.  A hearty breakfast will be offered, free of charge, before the start of the school day at all schools.  If your student did not get a breakfast before school, grab n’ go 2nd chance breakfast will be available at recess.  Please note that only 1 breakfast is free.

Food Allergies and Special Diet Requests

If your student has a food allergy or dietary restriction due to medical reasons, please submit a medical statement.  Medical Statement Form
