School Nutrition Program
Supply Chain Issues
Our school nutrition program is currently experiencing supply chain issues. We are having trouble receiving ingredients from our food vendors. This is a nationwide problem, but we are working on several strategies to mitigate the impact on our students.
We apologize to students who are experiencing unusually long lunch lines and last-minute menu changes. As we navigate this challenging time, we appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thank you for your continued support.
Meal Service Updates SY 21-22
Food Services will continue to operate under the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the School Year (SY) 21-22.

However, our school sites will be operating as a closed site and will only offer free meals to enrolled students in the following schools: King City High School, Greenfield High School, and Portola Butler Continuation High School.

Earned Income Tax Credit Information Act Communication

Notice: The California Revenue and Taxation Code (RTC) Section 19853(b) requires local educational agencies (LEA) that operate the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) to annually notify households about the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Information Act.

Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits. In most cases, Federal EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, low-income housing, or most Temporary Assistance For Needy Families payments. Even if you do not owe federal taxes, you must file a federal tax return to receive the Federal EITC. Be sure to fill out the Federal EITC form in the Federal Income Tax Return Booklet. For information regarding your eligibility to receive the Federal EITC, including information on how to obtain the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 797 or any other necessary forms and instructions, contact the IRS by calling 1-800-829-3676 or through its Web site at

You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its Web site at
