Fresh Lunch

Free & Reduced Price Meals

ISM participates in the federal Free and Reduced-Price Meals program, and qualifying families who elect to receive free or reduced-price lunches can follow the Boonli process to order free lunches or order and pay the lower rate for reduced-price lunches.

Because ISM receives additional funding for all students who qualify for Free and Reduced-Price Meals, we ask that all families check the eligibility requirements and apply if they believe they have any chance to qualify, even if they do not plan to order free or reduced-price lunches.

Please direct all questions regarding FRPM and all applications for the program to Lisa Wichael-Loomis, Operations Manager, at lwloomis@ismonterey.org.

WIC provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Lunch Ordering & Pickup

All ISM families, including those who qualify for Free and Reduced Price Meals, may order one meal kit per week, per student. Parents/guardians or students can pick up the kits each Tuesday in front of the MUR between 11:30am and 1:30pm.

Orders must be submitted by noon Monday the week BEFORE the meal kit is picked up (i.e. 8 days ahead). 

For the health and safety of our staff and community, during pickup all parents/guardians and students must:

  • Wear a mask properly placed over mouth and nose at all times.
  • Approach the campus by walking up the concrete ramp, and leave down the sidewalk and stairs.
  • Maintain 6 feet distance from ISM staff and other family groups at all times.
  • Place a printed Boonli receipt or hand-written copy of each student's name, grade, and Boonli order number on the table then step back. A staff member will verify the meal selections, name, and grade level of each student.
  • Pick up the pre-bagged, selected meals from the table once a staff member has placed them there and stepped back.

Summer Meal Service

Because school has started, summer meal service has ended. Free meals for children 18 and under are no longer available at neighborhood schools, as they were this past spring and summer, unless your child is enrolled in that school.
