Welcome to the El Segundo Unified School District Food Services Department! 

IMPORTANT 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR MEAL SERVICE UPDATE

The El Segundo Unified School District Food Services Department will offer breakfast and lunch to all students at no cost starting August 25, 2021.  This is made possible through a waiver from the United States Department of Agriculture and California Department of Education. We encourage all families who may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals to complete and submit an Alternative Household Income Form.

In addition to providing eligible families important resources, completing the Alternative Income Form will provide additional funding to the El Segundo Unified School District. Qualifying children receive supplemental funding through the Local Control Funding Formula to enhance student services across the district.
