Financial Assistance - Free and Reduced Price Meals
If you feel you need assistance paying for student meals, you may fill out a Free/Reduced Meals Application to see if your household qualifies. Application packets are mailed to every household by early August of each year. However, completed applications are accepted throughout the school year. A current application can be found at your child's school office or the Student Nutrition Services office at (951 Piedmont Rd.), or may be downloaded by clicking on: Free/Reduced Meals Application. Complete only one application per family. It is suggested that your completed application be brought in person to the Student Nutrition Services office for fastest processing. Otherwise, the result letter will be mailed to your home.
Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch. The lunch price is $3.00 per day.
Cash or Check
Cash or checks are accepted at all schools. Checks can be issued to Berryessa Student Nutrition Services (BUSD SNS). Please write your child's name and teacher's name on the check so it can be easily identified. Please note that a $16 bank fee will be charged to your child's account for non-sufficient funds.
