Lunch Information

You may be eligible to get $365 per child to help feed your family since schools are closed due to COVID-19. Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, is a new benefit for families that usually receive free and reduced-price school meals. 

Most families who receive CalFresh, CalWORKS, Medi-Cal, or other social services will get a P-EBT card in the mail before May 22. Please keep an eye out for this card in the mail over the next few weeks. 

Other families will need to complete a simple and quick online application before June 30, 2020.

The goal of the Norris School District’s lunch program is to provide a healthy lunch to children during the school day. In order to accomplish this, we must make sure we are financially secure. You play a key role in this effort and are responsible for purchases made by your child(ren) in our school cafeteria. 

• A courtesy email will be sent weekly notifying you of your child’s negative balance. It is still your responsibility to keep current on your child’s lunch account balance. 

• Whenever a student’s account has an unpaid balance of $30 or more, parents/guardians shall be notified that a payment is due within seven school days from the date of the notice. In cases of repeated nonpayment on a lunch account, the Superintendent or designee may contact parents/guardians to discuss the reasons for the nonpayment. 

The Norris School District uses NUTRIKIDS®, a computerized lunch system which replaces lunch tickets at each school site.  Parents may pay by credit card, check account balances, and set a low balance alert online at  When making an online payment, there is a transaction fee and may be a delay of up to 48 hours. Parents are encouraged to pay ahead and establish a lunch credit on their child’s account. 

Parents/students  also  have the option of making payments by cash, check or money order each morning in the cafeteria from 8:00 - 8:14 a.m. prior to the start of school. This payment option is immediately credited to your child’s account. You may only add funds to your child’s account at the school site where they attend. The cost for each lunch served is $3.00 for elementary and $3.50 for Norris Middle School.  

In the 2019-2020 school year, online applications will be available to all parents on August 1st and must be completed each school year. If you feel your family may qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program, you may submit an application online at our website: The online application enables us to speed up the application process and report eligibility determination with less delay. If you do not have internet access, you may complete an online application at your school site. Paper applications, will also be available at any school office or downloaded from our website.

Until your application is processed, please prepare to fund your child’s school meals.
