Meal Applications

No meal applications will be collected this school year for meal eligibility.  You are encouraged to fill out an alternate income form to qualify for FREE or REDUCED BUSING. However, an alternate income form will be available for families to complete.  Completing this form can ensure Bonita USD continues to receive vital funds for students that support the purchase of books, technology resources, discounts on college prep exams, and much more.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved a national school meal waiver to allow BUSD to continue operating the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) meal program through 2021-2022 school year. Under SSO, we are able to provide every student, free of charge, one breakfast and one lunch each school day.
