This program has been in place since 2004. Because we don’t collect or request income information, from families whose students attend Provision 2 schools, we are not able to confirm eligibility status for programs outside of the meal program.   We are not able to provide parents with a letter stating that they qualify for “free” meals.

KIPP Prize- will be submitting meal applications in the beginning of this 2018-2019 school year to determine their student's eligibility as free, reduced or paid price for lunch. For more information, call the Child Nutrition Services Department at 408-928-6903. UPDATE: As of October 3rd KIPP Prize qualified for Provision 2

For students participating in an After-School program also receive a cold supper meal at "no cost" through the Child and Adult Care Food Program.




Meals served and food and beverage items sold at ARUSD schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines, SB 12, SB 965, and SB 490. All meals are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of appealing foods and fresh produce that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.Nutrition Standards for Food Items Sold or Offered to Students and the ARUSD Approved Food List - Revised for 2018-2019
