PLEASE NOTE:  If you received a letter of Direct Certification in August 2019, you do not need to fill out an application.  Please call our office (510-317-4660) if all your San Lorenzo students were not listed on your letter...we can add remaining students without the need for another application!

Please only submit one application per family, each year!


For the most rapid processing of your application, please fill one out online! 


Paper applications are only available in the MAIN District Office or at the school sites...the Child Nutrition Department does not house applications in their office (due to safety concerns & location of this office)! 

The grace period for your students meal status will expire on September 30, 2019.  If you have not filled out an application for the 2019-2020 school year by September 30th your student will be dropped from the program!

Free or Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply, please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." Please note, if you receive a letter stating your child qualifies for REDUCED price meals, there is no daily charge for that meal for this school year.  Application forms can be filled out online or obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money. 

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 price 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. 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 are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed yet there does need to be documentation of status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status. However, a change in the 2011-12 regulations states that Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.
