BUSD to serve free meals for 2022–2023

BONSALL – Bonsall Unified School District staff announce their policy to serve nutritious meals every school day under the School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program, and at select sites, Afterschool Snack Program. Effective July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, all students will be served meals at no charge at the following sites:

Bonsall High School, Vivian Banks Charter School, Sullivan Middle School, Bonsall West Elementary School and Bonsall Elementary School

Even though meals are free, staff request that households submit the application for meal benefits. Qualifying for free/reduced price meal benefits can provide a pathway to additional free or discounted services outside of school. Furthermore, it also helps provide additional funding for the school district.

For a simple and secure method to apply, use the online application at Contact Kursten Orr, Child Nutrition Services Director, at 760-631-5200 x. 1025 for help filling out the application.

Households may turn in an application at any time during the school year. If they are not eligible now, but their household income goes down, household size goes up, or a household member starts receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR, they may turn in an application at that time. Information given on the application will be used to determine eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school officials. The last four digits of the Social Security number from any adult household or checking that they do not have a Social Security number is required if they include income on the application.

If the applicant does not agree with the decision or results of verification, they may discuss it with school officials. They also have the right to a fair hearing, which may be requested by calling or writing the following hearing official: Joseph Clevenger, Superintendent, at 760-631-5200 x. 1025.
