Update: Child Nutrition Services will not collect meal applications through the program Provision 2 2020-2021 where all ARUSD students will receive breakfast, lunch and supper at “no cost” for the school year.

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.
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.
NO MEAL APPLICATION NEEDED FOR 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
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.
