Free Meals Extended Through the 2022-23 School Year for All Students!!

Beginning in 2022-23, the CA Department of Education has established a CA Universal Meals Program allowing all students in TK-12 to receive breakfast and lunch free of charge, regardless of income status. Paperwork is not required to participate in this program, however the state and federal government each require Da Vinci to report the number of students who qualify for free and reduced meals.

In order to maximize funding for ALL students, we request that you complete both the CA Household Income Data Collection form and the federal Meal Application at

Please keep an eye out for "First Day" forms after July 1 that will include important information that needs to be filled out to maximize ongoing funding for ALL students.  All families will be asked to submit your income information through your family's SchoolMint account. No Social Security Number is required, and income is tracked in broad windows rather than specific amounts.  We also ask that you complete an online Meal Application at Only complete one application per family. This information will not be shared or utilized for any other purpose.

Why should I fill out these forms if meals are free of charge?
Based on your circumstances, your family may qualify for P-EBT food benefits, low cost internet access, utilities assistance, fee waivers for college applications, SAT/ACT and Subject Test fee waivers, scholarships, and more! You may be eligible for significant savings!!

Completing both the CA Household Income Data Collection form and the federal Meal Application ensure that Da Vinci is able to maximize state and federal funding and apply for certain programs that support ALL students. Every year Da Vinci leaves hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding on the table because not all eligible families complete a meal application.  Don't delay, these forms need to be completed by October 31, 2022 in order to maximize funding for all students.
