Free & Reduced-Price Meal Applications Impact School Funding

The Food Services Department has processed more than 38,280 free- and reduced-price meal applications in the first four weeks of school. The total percentage of students on the free- and reduced-price meal program at a school directly affects the school’s Title I funding, E-Rate rebates and grant funding. Although the majority of applications are submitted at the beginning of a school year, it’s important to remember that meal applications can be processed throughout the school year. For more information, please contact Pam Kowalski, food service business coordinator, at (858) 627-7332.
