This system is secure, fast, and easy-to-use online where parents/students can view our lunch menu, order, and prepay for student lunches. Please note: we do not accept payment in the lunch line, orders and payment must be submitted ahead of time.

Meal Program

City Charter Schools participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP), which serves meals to students every day. A copy of the policy is available at our central office (11625 W. Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064), and may be reviewed by any interested party.

The household size and income criteria are used to determine a student’s eligibility for free, reduced-price or full-price meal benefits. Children from households with incomes at or below eligible levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Children who receive Food Stamps, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), Kinship Guardianship Assistance Payments (KinGAP) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits are automatically eligible for free meals, regardless of the income of the household in which they reside. Eligibility for a foster child is based on a separate application and solely on the child’s income.

For more information, read our NSLP & SBP PARTICIPATION ANNOUNCEMENT.

Contact the front office to receive the FREE/REDUCED PRICE MEAL APPLICATION FOR 2017-18, or pick one up from the front office at The City School.
