Nea Daily Lunch Program
School meals are still available during Distance Learning. Nea CLC works with the AUSD Food and Nutrition Services (FANS) to provide lunch and breakfast options for all learners.
Free Meal Program extended!
Good news! The USDA is extending its free meal program (the one AUSD uses for its summer meal offerings) through December 31st, 2020. Any youth up to age 18 can pick up meals at AUSD distribution sites. No ID is needed. Parents can pick up meals without a child present. You will receive multiple days' worth of meals.
We still encourage families to apply for the National School Lunch Free & Reduced Price Program, because qualifying for that program confers other benefits, such as reduced prices for PSAT, SAT, ACT, and AP exams, and free college applications. To apply, please go to the AUSD School Nutrition and Fitness web page.
