School Lunch Program


The San Carlos School District (SCSD) participates in the National School Lunch Program. At all SCSD schools, all students are offered nutritious meals every school day. You may qualify for these meals for free or at a reduced rate ($0.40 per lunch).  The meal programs we participate in are supported by federal and state reimbursements that are based on household income and eligibility. We are able to serve free and reduced-price meals because households continue to submit meal applications. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. You or your children do not have to be U.S. citizens to qualify for free meals.


If you are interested in applying for free or reduced-price meals an electronic Electronic Application is available now! Click on the link and apply online for Free or Reduced-Price meals. Or you can download the application below.

Please contact Lisa Ceragioli if you need instructions on how to pre-load your Lunch Is Served account with funds if you qualify for free or reduced-price meals.

If you qualified for lunches last year and would like to continue free or reduced-price meals this year, you must re-apply and place orders for your child.  The district will NOT be placing orders for any children.

Please complete the lunch application and submit it to:

San Carlos School District
ATTN: Lisa Ceragioli
1200 Industrial Road, Unit 9
San Carlos CA  94070

Original, signed application is required for qualification; faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted.

If there are more household members than the number of lines on the application, attach a second application.  You will be notified by mail regarding eligibility.
