Your child(ren) may be eligible for free or reduced-price meal benefits if you meet any of the following criteria:
- If you receive food stamps, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKS), CalFresh, or Food Distribution on Indian Reservations (FDPIR).
- If your total household income is the same or less than the amounts on the Income Eligibility Guidelines. A household is a group of related or unrelated individuals living together and sharing living expenses.
