UNIVERSAL MEAL SERVICE - AB 130
UNIVERSAL MEAL SERVICE COMING IN 2022-2023
On July 9, 2021, Assembly Bill (AB) 130 was passed to allow the state of California to provide free meals each school day to every student (TK – 12) beginning in the 2022-2023 School Year. Under this legislation, schools will be required to serve two nutritiously compliant meals to students who are on campus each day school is in session. For WISH students, this will be breakfast and lunch.
For the 2021-2022 school year, AB 130 enables schools that are approved for the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) to also feed students one nutritiously compliant meal each day for free, regardless of family income. WISH is currently not an SSO meal site, but we are working on the applications and hope to be able to announce our participation in this program for the 2021- 2022 school year.
Until we are formally approved to participate in the SSO meal service for 2021-2022, WISH will continue to participate in the National School Lunch Program with lunch service each day school is in session.
