*SCHOOL MEALS ARE FREE FOR ALL STUDENTS IN SY 2022-23*

School meals are free for students this school year, however, we encourage you to turn in a meal application to take advantage of potential benefits for you and your family, while also helping our district.

Qualifying for free or reduced-eligibility may result in discounted rates on broadband, academic tests, and athletics and may provide additional funding for state and federal programs and services in our district.

 
School meals are critical to student health and well-being and ensures that students have the nutrition they need throughout the day to learn. Our department is committed to providing healthy and delicious meals prepared and served with the most care to our PGUSD students. We participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP).
 
Applications for Free and Reduced-Priced Meal Eligibility are available and accepted beginning on July 1st for each upcoming school year and at anytime during the school year. The meal application must reflect the accurate school year. 
 
Prior year eligibility does not guarantee eligibility for the new school year. You must submit a new application with current information in order to be considered for free or reduced-price meal eligibility. Please ensure that you complete all required sections of the application. Incomplete applications will result in a delay in processing. You only need to submit one applcation per household.
