Are you eligible for federal food programs?
Submitted By New Haven Unified School District
The New Haven Unified School District (NHUSD) participates in the child nutrition programs offered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The school district receives funding for providing nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch and snacks to NHUSD students. Parents who have children in the district are encouraged to fill out a meal application to determine the eligibility category for school meals. The information that parents provide is confidential and will be used only for eligibility determinations and verification of the data.
To determine your eligibility for the meal program, you must apply and provide information regarding household size and income. Households that receive Food Stamps (CalFresh), or California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKS) may be notified of their childÕs automatic eligibility to receive free meals, and do not need to apply unless they do not receive our notification. These children will be provided free meal benefits unless the school is contacted and the free meals are declined. If you are receiving assistance from these programs and do not receive notification of free meal eligibility, please apply online or complete a paper application.
Households may apply online for the school year 2017-2018 on the District website: www.nhusd.k12.ca.us. Paper applications will be provided to all District households and will also be available in August at all school sites, the District Office, and at the office of Food & Nutrition Services located at 2831 Faber Street in Union City, California 94587.
Please contact Food and Nutrition Services at (510) 475-3992 if you have questions regarding the program.
