Complete your student's free lunch application to receive a variety of added benefits if you qualify.
DO I QUALIFY FOR FREE LUNCH BENEFITS? Check the income scale below. "Household size" means the amount of actual people, including infants and extended family that live in the home. There are two ways to apply for free lunch benefits. Fill out an application online or complete a paper application and send it to the school office. Click here to complete the application online or click the links below (English or Spanish) to complete a hard copy application. Make sure to click on "Create New Profile" if you are new to the online system and need to enroll your student(s) in the lunch program.
Households do not need to turn in an application when the household receives a notification letter saying that all children automatically qualify for free meals when any household member receives benefits from CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR. Children who meet the definition of foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway, and children enrolled in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals. Contact school officials if any child in the household is not on the notification letter. The household must let school officials know if they do not want to be considered eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
Applications will be sent to the household with a letter about the school meal program. While breakfasts and lunches will be provided free of charge every school day, determining eligibility for free and reduced-price meals is still necessary and these determinations can be used to qualify households for other benefits. Households interesting in establishing eligibility for meal benefits, must fill out one application for all children in the household and give it to the nutrition office at 12375 California St, Yucaipa, CA 92399. For a simple and secure method to apply, use our online application at www.mymealtime.com. Contact the school office at 909-446-1100 for help filling out the application. The school will provide notification regarding the outcome of your applications.
