In partnership with the Food Service Team at Rincon Valley Union School District, we are pleased to announce that
BVUSD is able to provide quality, nutitious, no-cost, twice-daily meals (breakfast & lunch) to our students for the 2023-2024 school year!
HOW TO ORDER?
Raise your hand when your teacher asks, “Who wants a lunch today?”
If you forget, don’t worry.
The kitchen makes 10-20 extra meals a day.
No student will go hungry and will always be offered a compliant meal.
We're calling it the 'More than a Meal' Application, because the application may make your household eligible for SO MUCH MORE!
Eligible families gain access to a long list of benefits that includes: free or reduced before/after school care, local scholarships for student camps and enrichment, and home internet services.
Plus, our district also receives additional funding for every application by an eligible family.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture prohibits discrimination against its customers, employees, and applicants for employment on the bases of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, gender identity, religion, reprisal, and where applicable, political beliefs, marital status, familial or parental status, sexual orientation, or all or part of an individual’s income is derived from any public assistance program, or protected genetic information in employment or in any program or activity conducted or funded by the Department. (Not all prohibited bases will apply to all programs and/or employment activities.) If you wish to file a Civil Rights program complaint of discrimination, complete the USDA Program Discrimination Complaint Form, found online at http://www.ascr.usda.gov/complaint_filing_cust.html, or at any USDA office, or call (866) 632-9992 to request the form. You may also write a letter containing all of the information requested in the form. Send your completed complaint form or letter to us by mail at U.S. Department of Agriculture, Director, Office of Adjudication, 1400 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20250-9410, by fax (202) 690-7442 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339; or (800) 845-6136 (Spanish). “USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.”
Qualification: Your children may qualify for free or reduced-price meals if your household income falls at or below the federal Income Eligibility Guidelines below.
Applying for Benefits: An application for free or reduced-price meals cannot be reviewed unless all required fields are completed. A household may apply at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now, but your household income decreases, household size increases, or a household member becomes eligible for CalFresh, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits, you may submit an application at that time.
Direct Certification: An application is not required if the household receives a notification letter indicating all children are automatically certified for free meals. If you did not receive a letter, please complete an application or check with the BVUSD Food Services Dept.
Verification: School officials may check the information on the application at any time during the school year. You may be asked to submit information to validate your income or current eligibility for CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR benefits.
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Participants: Households that receive Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for WIC benefits, may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals by completing an application.
Homeless, Migrant, Runaway, and Head Start: Children who meet the definition of homeless, migrant, or runaway, and children participating in their school’s Head Start program are eligible for free meals. Please contact school officials for assistance at 707-542-2201.
Foster Child: The legal responsibility must be through a foster care agency or court to qualify for free meals. A foster child may be included as a household member if the foster family chooses to apply for their non foster children on the same application and must report any personal income earned by the foster child. If the non foster children are not eligible, this does not prevent a foster child from receiving free meals.
Fair Hearing: If you do not agree with the school's decision regarding your application’s determination or the result of verification, you may discuss it with the hearing official. You also have the right to a fair hearing, which may be requested by calling or writing to the following: Alexis Cala, Superintendent. 2205 Mesquite Dr. Santa Rosa, CA 95405. #707-542-2201 email:email@example.com
Eligibility Carryover: Your child’s eligibility status from the previous school year will continue into the new school year for up to 30 operating days or until a new determination is made. When the carryover period ends, your child will be charged the full price for meals, unless the household receives a notification letter for free or reduced-price meals. School officials are not required to send a reminder or expired eligibility notices.
Questions or Assistance: Please contact Rich Parde at 707-542-2201 (this is a free call) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
