What is CUSD Food Service?

The Cabrillo Food Service Department is a self-supporting program within the district. These meals are designed to meet 1/3 of the average child's daily nutritive requirements. CUSD Food Service participates in the National School Lunch Program.

Without proper nutrition, mental and physical activity would be greatly impaired. It is the responsibility of CUSD Food Service to properly fuel the minds and bodies of our students, assisting the educational process by providing the nutrients necessary for increased mental stamina, attentiveness, and retention. Our state and federal governments exert strict but necessary controls in the how and what portion of serving school meals.

Free or Reduced Price Meal Benefits - Letter, instructions and Application

Our state and federal governments provide reimbursement revenues to CUSD Food Service for every complete school meal served. The amount of this reimbursement depends on the student receiving the meals. There are three separate eligibility levels: free, reduced, and not eligible. Information on the meal subsidy plan is sent home with every child when school begins each September. Parents may fill out an application at any time during the school year and return it to their child's school or mail it to the District office. If the student's family income meets the government guidelines, a letter is sent to the family's mailing address notifying the parents that their children are eligible to receive free or reduced price meals. All information supplied to the Food Service Department on the application or on supplementary documentation is kept confidential.

An application for meal benefits can be downloaded from the link above or may be obtained at any school office, lunch room, or at the District Office. Upon request, an application will be mailed to you after contacting the District Office at 650-712-7117 or emailing the Food Services Department. You may return the completed application to the school office, District office or mail to the Cabrillo Unified School District at 498 Kelly Avenue, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019
