    With the end of the USDA Universal Meal Program, AFUHSD will return to the Meal Benefit Program (Free & Reduced Meals) starting in the 2022-2023 school year. With the Meal Benefit Program, students will be responsible for purchasing their breakfast and lunch meals. Students may qualify for free or reduced meals.

    • Breakfast = $2.00/day
    • Reduced Breakfast = $0.00/day 
    • Lunch = $3.25/day

How to apply for free or reduced breakfast and lunch

Families are encouraged to complete and submit a Meal Benefit Application for 2022-23 school year after July 1st, 2022.  You can apply online or you can download a paper application and return it to your student’s cafeteria. A new application is required each school year.

It's More Than a Meal Application

  • We encourage ALL AFUHSD families to complete a Meal Benefits Application. The information collected on the applications for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) can do more than just provide free and reduced-price meals.

    Families who qualify for free/reduced school meals may also qualify for: 

    • Discounted rates on phone service.
    • Maintain funding for student programs and services.
    • Reduced registration fees for AP, SAT and/or ACT tests.
    • Discounted fees to participate in most sports.
    • Discounted rates on fees associated with applying for college.
    • Eligible for discounted rates on internet services.

    If you have any questions regarding the Meal Benefit Application or school meal service, please email Food Service Department at or call 623.932.7000.

Find Meals For Kids When Schools Are Closed

  • To ensure that children who rely on free or reduced-price meals at school are able to get the nutrition they need, USDA is working with states to continue providing meals to students.

    Also, the USDA National Hunger Hotline remains a helpful resource for people seeking food assistance. The hotline, operated by Hunger Free America, can be reached Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET. at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273) (for Spanish).
