Food Service Extends 2021-2022 School Year

Pleasanton Unified School District takes part in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. We are pleased to share with you that the free meal program has been extended for 2021 - 2022 school year! This means all students can receive “ free ” breakfast and lunch. No meal application required. However, we highly encourage your family to complete a meal application form. There are benefits for both your family and the school district.
Meal applications help determine the amount of funding a school district receives. For families, completing this form and being approved for free/reduced status includes benefits such as P-EBT cards, athletic fee waivers, discounts on AP testing fees, camps, bus passes, and cable TV discounts, among others. It takes less than 15 minutes to complete, and we would greatly appreciate your support in taking the time to do so!  
To complete a meal application go to
You may complete the free or reduced-price meal application form at any time during the school year, but the best time to do this is before October 31st.
This is the deadline to help support district funding. Pleasanton USD participates in Direct Certification. If your household receives SNAP (Calfresh) or Medical benefits or if your child(ren) receive(s) CalWORKS or FDPIR benefits, your child(ren) may be automatically certified to receive free or reduced-price meals. This means you do not need to complete an application. If you did not receive a direct certification letter for your child who is in any of these programs you must complete an application. If you have any questions or need help in applying to be certified eligible for free or reduced-price meals, please contact Child Nutrition Services at 925.426.4417.
