    Free Meals

    Free Breakfast and Lunch Meals for All Enrolled Students for School Year 2022-2023

    Beginning the school year 2022-2023 , California has become the first state to implement a statewide Universal Meals program for school children. Education Code 49501.5 requires public school districts, country offices of education, and charter schools serving students in grades TK-12 to provide two meals free of charge (breakfast and lunch) during each school day to students requesting a meal, regardless of students' free or reduced-price meal eligibility starting in 2022-23 school year. 

    Although meals are free of charge, the state continues to require school districts to distribute and collect free/reduced meal applications. Completion of these applications may bring significant additional funds to our schools, as well as, qualify students for individual benefits such as discounts and/or waivers of the college applications fees, AP testing fees, internet services, P-EBT benefits, discounted rates on your energy bill and more. 

    The link to the meal application can be found on the nutrition services website Carmel Unified School District  or return a completed application form (available at all school sites or download pdf document in English here  or Spanish aquí . Applications can be returned directly to your school site or to the Nutrition Services Department at Carmel High School (3600 Ocean Avenue, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA 93923).

    Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions,call 831-624-1546 ext.2070 or 2072.
