No-Cost Meals for All Students
California has become the first state to pass universal free school meals program for all public school students. Free lunch will be offered at all schools. Free breakfast will be offered at participating school sites. All meals will comply with federal nutrition regulations.
More Than Meals! Benefits for Your Student and School
Completing a school meals form is crucial to school funding.
- For every student who applies and qualifies for free or reduced price meals, the school receives more than $150 and additional money from state and federal grants. This includes increased funding for after school programs, technology, counseling services, and equipment for school kitchens.
- Families who qualify for free or reduced may also be eligible for free or reduced cost internet, free or reduced cost summer camps, and more! Your application helps your child and many others. Check income eligibility below.
NOTE: The district shall not deny any individual the benefits or service of any nutrition program or discriminate against him/her on any basis prohibited by law. Collecting payment for meals will adhere to the regulations in Board Policy 3551.
Applying online is the fastest way to qualify your child for Free/Reduced lunch. All online applications are secure, private and processed within 24 hours.

Middle School A-la-Carte Lines
We will not operate a-la-carte lines at middle schools in the beginning of the upcoming school year. We will reopen a-la-carte lines when regulations state we can safely use student workers to help with the a-la-carte meal service. We will inform the families once lines open and give parents the option of pre-paying for their child’s a-la-carte account online.
For more details, please see our policy on food servie operations.
The Campbell Union School District has a Wellness Committee that meets four times annually. Our purpose is to monitor our district Wellness Guidelines, make necessary changes, and to set goals for student and staff wellness. After each wellness meeting we will provide the public with updates regarding goals we have set to promote wellness, our progress throughout the year, and our accomplishments at the end of the year.
Good Nutrition for Healthy Living
Our team of food service and nutrition professionals is dedicated to providing nutritious and delicious food and helping children develop healthy habits for life.
- We provide healthy, affordable, tasty meals every school day. We offer lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and all of the grains we use are whole-grain rich. Milk choices are fat-free and low-fat, and our meals are low in salt, low in saturated fat, and have no trans fat. We plan our meals to meet students’ age-specific nutrition and calorie requirements and meet state and federal requirements that are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
- We sponsor education programs that make learning about nutrition fun. Educational programs, such as Harvest of the Month, Farm Field Trips and school-based Farmer’s Markets allow students to see, touch, taste and learn about fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Often, students discover that they like these foods and begin choosing them more often at mealtime.
- We offer information about nutrition that parents can use at home with the family. Parents often ask us how they can support nutrition and fitness education at home. We provide quarterly newsletters that provide tips and tricks to encourage healthy eating at home. We are also available by phone, email or in person to answer any questions that parents might have about nutrition.
