Bonsall school breakfast and lunch programs

BONSALL — For the 2023-2024 school year, the Bonsall Unified School District is participating in the School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program by offering healthy meals every school day. The California Universal Meals Program, AB 130, requires public school districts serving students in grades K–12 to provide two meals free of charge (breakfast and lunch) during each school day to students requesting a meal, regardless of their free or reduced-price meal eligibility. No meal application is required in order to take advantage of the free meals.

Due to the California Universal Meals Program, all students at the following sites will receive one free breakfast and lunch each school day:

• Bonsall Elementary School

• Bonsall West Elementary School

• Sullivan Middle School

Choosing to complete the free and reduced-price meal application may help benefit the district with additional funding and it may also help families with discounted testing, internet, bus passes and more. All families are encouraged to apply if they think they may qualify. Households may submit an application at any time during the school year.

In addition, Bonsall High School and Vivian Banks Charter School will be implementing a program available to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). All enrolled students of these schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no cost to the household each day of the school year. Children will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application. Please complete the Alternative Income Form during registration to help provide additional funding to our district.

To apply for benefits, either request a paper application from the school office or apply online at Bonsall Unified School District’s website.

For more information, contact Kursten Orr, Child Nutrition Services Director, at (760) 631-5200 x.1025 or [email protected].
