Request For Every Student's Family To Submit An Application for Meal Benefits

We are requesting that every student turn in an Application For Meal Benefits, even if they are eligible or not. If parents do not wish to apply for meal benefits, there is a check box on the application to let us know.

Parents may fill out a paper version of the meal application, which is available at the Main Office or the Cafeteria Manager's Office. For their convenience, parents may fill out an online version of the meal application at www.applyforlunch.com/Application

With every student turning in an application, Virgil would continue to receive special funding and opportunities for all our students. So, please make sure that you fill out an application and have your child return the application to their teacher as soon as possible.

Thank you! 


Meal Application
The meal application process is federally mandated and the Food Services Division must follow all applicable regulations in order to continue to receive reimbursement funds. Each year the California Department of Education, Nutrition Services Division, must approve our meal application.

Online Meal Application
Parents and guardians can submit a meal application online. The online application will be processed within 24 hours, and you will not have to fill out a paper application and mail it or hand it over to the Food Services Manager at your child's school. By clicking on the link you can access the online meal application. APPLY NOW
