Meal Applications for School Year 2020-21
Dear Bellflower Unified Parent or Guardian:
The Bellflower Unified School District will be participating in the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program during distance learning for the 2020-21 school year, which will provide every student with access to a healthy meal. In order to ensure that your child has the opportunity to receive a Free, Reduced Price, or Paid meal, we are asking that you follow the steps outlined in this letter and submit your Meal Application before school begins so that we are ready to serve all our families that will be participating. Information about meal distribution times and meal pin numbers will be forthcoming.
Bellflower USD is asking each family to complete a meal application. Only one application per family is needed. For those families who feel they do not qualify we ask that you mark the option, “Decline Benefits.”. Completing meal applications is important to our District and the Nutrition Services Department. Bellflower USD receives additional funds based on the number of meal applications we receive. If you qualified last year, you will have to resubmit an application this year.
Haven’t received your P-EBT card in the mail yet? If you are a family with children eligible for free or reduced-priced school meals you may receive up to $365 in food benefits. Click here to apply today. Be sure to apply BEFORE June 30, 2020.
If you need Internet at home, please contact your site principal.
