Free Meals for OUSD Students
Communicating with families matters, and we know that many of you plan your children's lunches based on what we offer. Unfortunately, sometimes we must change plans because we cannot get needed ingredients. This can happen because of nationwide labor shortages in factories, on farms and with delivery companies. We will update our website as quickly as possible when we must adjust menus.

This site includes allergens for your reference and is available in multiple languages.
In the search bar, start typing Oakland Unified School District and select it once the full name appears. From there, choose your language preference on the far right of your screen & filter by school site to view what is being offered each day that month. To select breakfast, snacks or lunch, click on the tab just below the date. Though all sites appear to offer CACFP Snack and CACFP Supper, these are only offered at schools with high numbers of low income students. Please contact your school to find out if they have snack and/or supper programs.
