New Haven nutrition programs
Submitted By Carleen England
New Haven Unified School District (NHUSD) participates in the child nutrition programs offered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The school district receives funding for providing nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch and snacks to NHUSD (Union City and South Hayward) students. Parents who have children in the district are encouraged to fill out a meal application to determine the eligibility category for school meals. The information that parents provide is confidential and will be used only for eligibility determinations and verification of the data.
To determine your eligibility for the meal program, you must apply and provide information regarding household size and income. Households that receive Food Stamps, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (Cal WORKS), or Kinship Guardian Assistance Payment Program (Kin-GAP) will be notified of their child's automatic eligibility to receive free meals, and do not need to apply unless they do not receive our notification. These children will be provided free meal benefits unless the school is contacted and the free meals are declined.
2011-2012 Meal Applications will be mailed to household families already participating in the program. If you are new to the district, or are interested in applying, applications are available at the District Office, the Cabello Enrollment Center, and at all school sites. 2011-2012 Meal Applications are also available on our website, and at the office of Food and Nutrition Services located at 2831 Faber Street, Union City. For further assistance, please contact Food and Nutrition Services at (510) 475-3992, ext 60746.
