Nutrition Services Update:
Free Meals Through December 31, 2020

Great news! The USDA has extended the Seamless Summer waiver that will allow the TUSD Nutrition Services Department to serve FREE meals to anyone 18 and under (not just TUSD students), until December 31, 2020.

Starting September 3, we will serve bulk meals for FREE on Mondays and Thursdays at all TUSD school sites (except Shery High), from 11 AM - 1 PM, and an early morning pick up from 7 AM - 9 AM at the four high schools only (therefore high schools will serve from 7-9 am AND 11-1 pm).

On Mondays, you will receive 3 days’ worth of meals (Monday - Wednesday). On Thursdays, you will receive 2 days’ worth of meals (Thursday - Friday). Meals will include Breakfast and Lunch. Parents/guardians will be allowed to pick up meals for their students without the student present.

Please make sure to apply for the meal program by visiting family.titank12.com and selecting "Apply for Meals Today" since the waiver has been only extended until December 31, 2020. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

If you have any questions, please call the Nutrition Services office at 310-972-6350 or you can email at nutritionservices@tusd.org

Torrance, Ca -Torrance Unified School District announces its policy to serve nutritious meals every school day under theNational School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program. Effective July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income is less than or equal to the federal guidelines.

Households do not need to turn in an application when the household receives a notification letter saying that all children automatically qualify for free meals when any household member receives benefits from CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR. Children who meet the definition of foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway, and children enrolled in their school's Head Start program are eligible for free meals. Contact school officials if any child in the household is not on the notification letter. The household must let school officials know if they do not want to receive free or reduced-price meals.

Applications will be made available to the household for the free and reduced-price meal program. Households that want to apply for meal benefits must fill out one application for all children in the household each year at www.tusd.org/nutrition-services.

Contact the Nutrition Services Office at 310-972-6350 for help filling out the application. The school will let you know if your application is approved or denied for free or reduced-price meals.
