*Lunch Program Information* -- We are asking every family to complete an
application for free/reduced price school lunch. Even if your student does
not intend to take advantage of the lunch program, every qualified
application is counted towards bringing significant federal (Title I) and
state (LCFF/LCAP) funding to our schools! Please visit
https://secure.ezmealapp.com/Default.aspx to access the secure online meal

If your student does not qualify for free/reduced price lunch, and you want
an option that will make it convenient for your student to purchase meals
in the BHS Food Court, there is a separate application for a student meal
debit account for charging meals at https://www.ezschoolpay.com/Login.aspx.
