You will be asked to complete a free and reduced lunch application, but this is for record keeping and compliance only. There is no maximum income requirement for your child to receive free meals at schools at these schools. For other campuses – please be sure to complete and return a free and reduced lunch form. Even if you do not wish to participate in the lunch form- this data is important for UCP Charter Schools and our federal fund allocation.   Wellness Policy UCP
