Free & Reduced LunchHaving every family complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application not only helps ensure all students in need have the opportunity to receive nutritious school meals, but also helps determine the District's and each school site's LCFF Supplemental Grant funding.  We encourage you to fill out an application every year through a paper application or online at  
Students who were receiving free or reduced-price meal benefits at the end of last school year must fill out a NEW meal application for the 2017-18 school year.  Students who have NOT submitted a NEW meal application, but qualified last school year, will be required to pay full price for school meals starting Wednesday, September 27, 2017.  Students who did not receive free/reduced-price meals last school year and apply this year, will need to pay for their meals until the meal application is processed. 
Again this year, students who are eligible for reduced-price meals will not be required to pay a copay for breakfast or lunch because the San Mateo-Foster City School District waives the copay.

If you have questions regarding the free/reduced meal program, please call the Child Nutrition Services at 650-312-1968.  To apply online for Free/Reduced-Price Meals:
