LBSD offers free breakfast and lunch to all students
Special to Long Beach Breeze
Long Beach School District students can again enjoy free breakfast and lunch during the entire 2021-22 school year. Students will enjoy free “healthy and happy” meals, catered by Chartwells K12.
All households are encouraged to submit the free/reduced meal application at MySchoolApps, as eligibility is tied to the P-EBT benefit, but all students will receive free breakfast and lunch, regardless of the status of an application, through the USDA’s Seamless Summer Option.
Balanced nutrition through the breakfast and lunch programs contribute to student success in and out of the classroom. Studies have demonstrated that school meals play an important role in supporting obesity prevention, overall student health and academic achievement by improving children’s diets and combatting hunger.
