Free Meals at Community-Based Organizations

Student Nutrition Services is partnering with the following community-based organizations to provide our free grab & go meals at additional sites throughout the city.

Services will vary at each site, and may include meals such as cereal and muffins for breakfast; sandwiches and pupusas for lunch; pizza and burritos for supper; fresh fruit, vegetables and milk. 

No identification or proof of school enrollment is required. Adults can pick up meals for children without a child present. Shelf-stable meals will also be available. Families will not need to enter the building for pick-up.

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)

Families with children eligible for free or reduced-price school meals can receive additional support to purchase groceries through California’s Pandemic Emergency Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT). A P-EBT card with up to $365 for each eligible child is available.

  • Families with children that receive CalFresh, Medi-Cal, or Foster Care benefits should have received a P-EBT card in the mail by May 22, 2020.
  • If you did not receive a card, or if your child receives free or reduced-price school meals but is not on public benefit assistance, you will need to complete a short online application by June 30, 2020.

P-EBT is available to all eligible California families, regardless of their immigration status. P-EBT is not the same as CalFresh or Food Stamps. P-EBT is an emergency food benefit and is similar to other benefits that immigration officials do not consider for public charge purposes.

These benefits do not replace emergency school meals, families who receive these benefits can continue to pick up free meals at our school sites. Learn more at sfhsa.org/p-ebt or email SchoolLunch@sfusd.edu with questions.
