The USDA has extended the waiver that will allow us to continue to provide free meals to ALL children. But parents should still apply for free or reduced meals NOW if their child is eligible. There are important benefits for both your child and our school district. Funding for Alhambra Unified School District is directly affected by how many students qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, so every student who qualifies provides the District with extra funding that is vital for school programs. CLICK ON THE HEADLINE for more information and a QR code with a direct link (or visit the Food and Nutrition Services page to sign up).
