Meal Applications

Update: Child Nutrition Services Meal Applications and Provision 2 2019-2020 receiving breakfast, lunch and supper at “no cost” for the school year.

Adelante I, Adelante II, Aptitud, Arbuckle, Cassell, Chavez, Cureton, Dorsa, Fischer, Renaissance at Fischer, George, Hubbard, Linda Vista, LUCHA, Lyndale, Mathson, Renaissance at Mathson, McCollam, Meyer, Ocala, Painter, Russo/McEntee, Ryan, San Antonio, and Sheppard.

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.

Alum Rock Child Nutrition Program sponsors the following schools for breakfast, lunch and supper meals.

Through Provision 2 program, CNS, will not be collecting any meal applications from families and therefore we cannot generate a letter stating families receive "free meals". However, schools will be able to provide families with the Notice of Information for Provision 2 in its place should families request it.

- DCP and KIPP Prize will receive meals at no cost through Provision 2 program

- KIPP Heartwood is in the process of collecting meal applications to determine their students eligibility as free, reduced or paid meal prices and set its base year for Provision 2.

Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. 

Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income. HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. DO NOT INCLUDE FOSTER CHILDREN. The TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income. 

Foster Children - In certain cases, foster children are eligible for free and reduced-price meals regardless of your income. If you have foster children living with you and want to apply for them, please contact us.
