"Free" Summer Lunch Continues at Local Schools

Lunch will be free of charge at three CUSD schools through mid-August.

To meet the nutritional needs of children whose families may be vulnerable to hunger, Campbell Union School District will provide nutritious meals, free of charge, at three schools. As a part of the U.S. Seamless Summer Feeding Program, all children from 2 to 18 years old can come eat lunch for free. All children in the community are welcome, regardless of which school or preschool they attend.

Free lunch will be available June 24 – August 13 at:

  • Castlemont Elementary: 11:45am to 12:30pm
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary: 11:00am to 11:45am
  • Monroe Middle School: 11:15am to 12:00pm

Other school districts in the area also are providing meals. There is a mobile app that can help parents and guardians find nearby California Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs locations.  Visit the  CA Meals for Kids website for instructions.
