Meals at McKinley

Breakfast and lunch are available in the cafeteria every day.  A menu is published once a month.  The cost of meals is listed in the meal application forms.  If your child has special dietary needs, please contact Student Nutrition Services and let the front office know immediately.  More information can be found on the SFUSD Student Nutrition Services webpage.

Morning recess is a “snack recess”. Please send your child with a healthy snack every day.


Monthly menus for breakfast and lunch at McKinley can be found here.

SFUSD Multipurpose Family Income Form

Every family needs to return a completed Multipurpose Family Income Form, even if you believe you do not qualify for free/reduced lunch and/or do not plan on eating school meals. Only one application is needed per family - please add all children who attend school in SFUSD on a single application. You can apply online or request a hard copy from the Main Office. This application is EXTREMELY important to McKinley ES, so please complete the form.  Online applications are much more efficient. There are computers in the Main Office if you don’t have access to one at home.  Paper forms take at least 10 working days to process.

Returning students who qualified the previous year will be able to eat for free for the first 30 days of school. They will need to submit new paperwork to continue eating for free. Kindergartners and new students will need to pay for meals until they have been notified about their status by Student Nutrition Services.

Paying for School Meals

Accounts can be made for Elementary School students at  Note:  This is a separate system than the one used for Middle and High School students.
