Free Lunch Service at East Palo Alto Library



Families can now visit the East Palo Alto Library on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 1 PM to receive free lunches and snacks as part of the Summer Food Service Program. Priority will be given to families with children ages 18 and under. Our meal service will last as long as supplies last each day. We look forward to supplying a nutritious lunch to you and your family — don’t forget to pick up your FREE Summer Learning Challenge books while you’re there!


A group of Stanford students created this map that documents where school kids across the Bay Area can access food during the closures.


Additionally, here is a list of school meal sites, generated by Second Harvest of Silicon Valley


If you need any assistance providing food for your children, please email Mindy Hill at directly or call her at 650-517-3851. We are working closely with the City of San Carlos and other area agencies to develop ways to make sure everyone is fed. 


East Palo Alto Students: Complimentary meals, breakfast and lunch, will be available for pick up at multiple sites in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park from 10:00 am-1:00 pm for children in the Ravenswood community, 18 years & younger. Please see the flyers below for locations and more information.


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, you may 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.
