Starting Sept. 1, SFUSD’s grab and go meal program is free for all students again. Every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Previously we had communicated that students who don’t qualify for free or reduced-priced meals would be charged.

Thanks to a recent policy change by the USDA, the meal program is now free for all students regardless of income eligibility.

Every Wednesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., a bag of 5 days' worth of meals (including breakfast, lunch, supper, fresh fruits and vegetables, and milk) is available for each student.  For locations and more information on what to bring to pick up meals, visit

Some families have expressed that the meal pick up time does not work for them. A parent survey is being conducted on convenient meal pickup times, and more information will be shared soon.
