National School Breakfast Week

March 6 - March 10 is National School Breakfast Week.  Breakfast is an important meal of the day.  School breakfast offers a delicious entree, fruits and milk - you can certainly count on your school for good nutrition.  With a full stomach, students are energized to learn and engage in class.  Students who eat breakfast daily also develop lifelong heathy eating habits.

Challenge your student to eat breakfast everyday!  


2016-17 Meal Application Forms are here


Thank you for another year of support completing the 2016-17 Meal Application!


The Meal Application is available online in 7 languages. Click the button below to start your application today.



Meal benefits from last school year will expire 30 school days after the start of school year. Apply by September 16th to avoid automatic paid status after that date.


Meal Applications are helpful, important tools for our students and families, as well as SFUSD. By submitting a Meal Application:

  • Students can access up to 3 nutritious meals per day, and qualify for free or reduced price meals.
  • Families eligible for the meal benefits can also qualify for other programs.
  • SFUSD receives more federal, local, and private grant funding, which is based on the total number of eligible Meal Application Forms collected.

Please help us reach our goal of collecting 100% of forms this year!

Students at 54 SFUSD schools can eat breakfast and lunch at no charge


During the 2016-17 school year, 54 schools will participate as Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) sites. Students at these schools are able to eat one breakfast and one lunch each day at no charge, regardless of individual eligibility for school meals.

Students attending CEP schools will fill out a Confidential Family Survey in place of the annual Meal Application. Surveys are distributed through each school.

Re-envisioning Dining Experience
SFUSD's Future Dining Experience has been working hard to rethink the way that students at SFUSD experience food at school. From redesigned dining areas, to thought leadership on school food innovation, we invite you to follow our effort to develop a financially stable food system that provides fresh, healthy meals to students as they grow.
