School Meals & Menus
CA Universal Meals Program
Choices Charter School offers free meals under the State of California Universal Meals Program. All students can receive one breakfast and one lunch at no cost every school day.
Complete the School Funding Form: Although no application is required to receive free meals, all families are asked to complete one school funding form per household to help our schools receive funds to support your students’ success.
The School Funding Form affects a variety of areas unrelated to school meals, including school funding, internet access, college application fees, SAT fees, and bus passes. Even though your student won’t eat school lunches, it is important to fill out the school funding form to ensure our schools and families receive the available resources.
All Choices Charter families are being asked to complete the school funding form to help ensure we receive the maximum amount of funding we are entitled to by law.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to fill out an application for each child?
No, you can fill out one form for multiple children in the same household.
Who will know that our family submitted an application?
Our system is confidential. Even if your child qualifies and chooses to eat lunch in the cafeteria, the breakfast and lunch process is the same as a student who is paying full price.
Do I still need to fill out a form if I qualify for other benefits?
No. If you are currently receiving food stamps, CalWORKS, KinGAP or FDPIR benefits and your information has not changed, your child automatically qualifies.
Do I have to list a social security number?
No. If you do not have a social security number or would prefer not to share it on the form, you are not required to list it.
