Meal Benefit Application Process

  •  AFUHSD will participate in the Meal Benefit Program (Free & Reduced Meals) for the 2023-2024 school year. With the Meal Benefit Program, students are responsible for purchasing their breakfast and lunch meals. 

    Students may qualify for free or reduced breakfast and lunch. Families are encouraged to complete and submit a Meal Benefit Application for 2023-24 school year after July 1st, 2023.  You can apply online or you can download a paper application and return it to your student’s cafeteria. Why Are School Meals No Longer Free This Year?
