You can type your information on the form, print it off, sign it and return it to the main campus office, cafeteria office or any snack bar window at Fullerton Joint Union High School District. Make sure you include the last four digits of your social security number or write “none” if you don’t have one. We strongly urge you to apply for the meal program. Your student’s status in the program will never be overtly identified.
Did You Know?
Students can qualify for fee waivers for SAT, PSAT, ACT, AP and IB exams and college applications if they qualify for this program.
Also, your family may qualify for fee waivers for utility bills and cell phone bills so keep your eligibility letter.
Free and Reduced Meals are available to Fullerton Joint Union High School District (District) students who apply and qualify. If your family chooses to apply, please complete a “2016/17 Fullerton Joint Union High School District Free and Reduced Meal Application online.” Beginning July 1, 2016, the application can be obtained on the District’s Web site at www.FJUHSDFoodServices.org or at your student’s high school administration office, or the District Education Center located at 1051 W. Bastanchury Road, Fullerton.
The District requires that you only complete ONE application per family, per residence. If multiple families reside at the same residence, each family is required to complete an application. Students attending elementary or junior high are required to complete applications separately at the elementary or junior high school district.
The information you give on the application will be used to determine your student’s eligibility for free or reduced price meals. You will receive an eligibility letter in the mail stating your student’s meal status. Your student’s eligibility status information can also be obtained through your student’s school cafeteria. Please note: until you receive notification regarding your student’s eligibility, you must provide your student with a breakfast, lunch, or money.
HOUSEHOLD SIZE is considered ALL persons, related or unrelated, including parents, children, and grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses.
TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the income each household member received last month before taxes – this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
(Effective from July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017)
Other factors considered in the application process are foster children and families receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal, Kin-GAP, and/or FDPIR.
FOSTER CHILDREN may be eligible for free and reduced price meals regardless of your income. If you have foster children living with you and want to apply for them, you may complete a separate application for your foster children or add them to the application with the rest of your family.
CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal, Kin-GAP, FDPIR – if your household currently receives benefits from CalFresh or CalWORKs, you may be part of the State of California’s Direct Certification and you DO NOT FILL OUT A MEAL APPLICATION.

If you do not receive an eligibility letter from the District stating that your high school student is part of this, then you will need to fill out an application.
