As required by law at the beginning of each school year, this week the William S. Hart Union High School District announced its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program. Each school and the District Office have copies of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party.
The household size and income criteria identified in the chart below (click it to enlarge) will be used to determine eligibility for free and reduced price benefits. Children from households whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for free or reduced price meals. Children who are members of food stamp households, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) assistance units, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families Program (TANF), or receive benefits from the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) are automatically eligible regardless of the income of the household in which they reside. Eligibility for a foster child is based on the child’s income.
