Lunch Accounts

Dear Natomas Charter School Families,

As we prepare for the 2023-2024 school year, we appreciate all families taking a few minutes to complete this year's free/reduced lunch application on Even if you have completed this application in the past it needs to be updated annually for our school to maintain consistent funding. The California Legislature has approved funding that will make all meals free this year. However, this application will help provide educational benefits to Natomas Charter School and your student(s). 


Completed forms may bring significant additional funds to our school for programs such as:

  • After-school athletics 

  • Music, band, dance, and performing arts

  • Before and after-school programs  

  • Enrichment activities

  • Summer Programming

  • Social-emotional and counseling support for students

  • And much more


In addition, filling out the form may qualify your student(s) for individual benefits such as:


  • College application fee waivers 

  • College exam testing fee waivers (PSAT, SAT, ACT)

  • Advanced Placement (AP) testing fee waivers

  • Reduced rates and/or free before-after-school care

  • Scholarships

  • Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) benefits

  • FREE $500 COLLEGE SAVINGS ACCOUNT (through CalKids)
