Meal Applications


Apply Now for the 2021-2022 School Year!

School meals from the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) are available to all NMUSD students (where applicable) at no cost during the 2021-2022 School Year.

We encourage each household to complete a School Meal Application. This information will allow the district to maximize school funding provided by the State of California for educational purposes.  This information will not be shared or utilized for any other purpose.

Please apply online (see link below) or complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." The forms can be printed from this website or obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. You will be notified by mail of your child's eligibility determination. Regardless of eligibility determination all students will continue to receive meals at no cost.

Only complete one application per family. The information provided on the application will be used to determine your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. Factors considered in the application process are household size and total household income:

    • HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered all persons, related or unrelated, living in your home and sharing expenses, including parents, children and grandparents.
    • TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.

Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed, but documentation of status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status is required. Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.


Applications are accepted all year long

For more information, please call (714) 424-5090.
