All Student Lunches for 2021-2022 are Free
The Nevada City School District participates in the National School Lunch Program by offering nutritious meals every school day.
Our district will continue to participate in an exciting lunch program with fresh nutritious food provided by the Nevada Joint Union High School Nutrition Services (Foothill Fresh) and Co-Sponsored by Sierra Harvest.
Link to the Free and Reduced Lunch Application
Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form." The forms can be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
Many families don't turn in an application for free or reduced meals because they don't think they qualify, they don't plan to have their child eat in the cafeteria, or they want to save their school money. What families may not know is that each of our schools receives additional funding based on the percentage of families who qualify. In addition to repaying our cafeteria fund for the cost of student meals, this percentage also provides funding for student computers and technology, certain academic programs, and staff.
