The Eastside Union School District takes part in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Meals are served every school day. Our goal is to provide good tasting nutritious meals to our students in a safe and caring environment.

 

Child Nutrition Services follows the nutritional guidelines provided by the National School Lunch Program. School lunches are required to meet one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and specific caloric levels. Breakfasts must meet one-fourth of the RDA.  We also follow the Dietary Guidelines for Americans by offering a variety of foods, which are low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol. Students are provided plenty of choices, including fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grain products. Salt is used in moderation. More information on meal patterns is available on the back of the school menu.

 

Student Meal prices are as follows:

$2.00  Breakfast (Grades K-5)

$2.00  Breakfast (Grades 6-8)

$2.25  Lunch (Grades K-5)

$2.50  Lunch (Grades 6-8)

$ .50  Milk or Juice

MyPaymentsPlus:

MyPaymentsPlus provides parents with a fast, easy, and secure way to add money to their child’s meal account (using a credit, debit card). It is a 24/7 self-service program for parents to view their child’s cafeteria balances and purchase history. MyPaymentsPlus also provides parents with the ability to receive free low balance emails. Please check out the APP store on your cell phone for the free mobile MyPaymentsPlus APP.

 

Send Cash:

You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student’s name, ID#, teacher’s name, and the dollar ($) amount. This can be turned into the cafeteria.

 

Online Free and Reduced Application:

Now you can apply for free or reduced school meals online by using the District's webpage and clicking on the link to the Child Nutrition Lunch Application.  The process is quick, easy and FREE! Since the information you’re providing is electronic, we’ll be able to review your application faster than ever.

The online application is very similar to the paper application we have used in the past. Both contain all of the details required by the USDA. The quick and simple step-by-step wizard will walk you through the process, resulting in a complete application that is ready for us to qualify!

 

If you receive Cal Fresh, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (Cal WORKs), Kinship Guardianship Assistance Payments (Kin-Gap), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR) benefits, your child may be eligible to receive free meals.

 

Eastside Union School District currently provides reduced price meals at no charge.

 

Households must reapply for meal benefits every school year. A meal status carries over into the following school year for a grace period of only 30 days. Only one application per household is required to apply.  When the application has been processed, and Eligibility determination is made within 10 working days. A notification call will be made to the phone number on the Student Information System (SIS).
