Mark Twain Union Elementary School District takes part in the National School Lunch and/or School Breakfast Programs. Meals are served every school day. Students may buy lunch for $2.50 and/or breakfast for $1.00. Eligible students may receive meals free. You or your children do not have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Students may buy milk for $.30.
If you now receive Food Stamps, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKS), Kinship Guardianship Assistance Payments (Kin-GAP) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits, your child may receive free meals.
If your total household income is the same or less than the amounts on the income scale on the application, your child may receive meals free or at a reduced price. Household means a group of related or non-related individuals who are living as one economic unit and sharing living expenses.
A foster care child who is the legal responsibility of the welfare agency or ward of the court may be eligible to receive meals free or at a reduced price regardless of income.
Please fill out the application and submit to the school office or district office. Once your application is received, you will receive a letter describing your status in the school lunch program. If information is missing from the application, someone from the school kitchen will be in touch with you regarding your application.
