Meal Application



If not, we urge you to apply for the LAUSD meals program.  Participation in the meals program brings many benefits to your family, as well as helps the school receive our share of Federal dollars.  Qualifying families receive:

  • Free college applications
  • Free admission to SAT and ACT tests
  • Reduced prices on all AP exams ($5 per exam)

The application also helps Venice to get Title I money—we got over $1,050,000 for students last year!  We used the money to pay for additional teachers, counselors, free math tutoring, and technology. 

You can fill out the online application here: . 

Call 213-241-3185 for assistance. 

LAUSD also has Grab ‘n’ Go centers near you for families that may need free, nutritious meals.  Families do not need to show ID, simply show up at a Grab ‘n’ Go center and you will be provided with breakfast and lunch each day.  Click here for more information on the Grab ‘n’ Go centers:

Completing the meal application takes on an additional meaning this year as it not only serves to verify student eligibility for free and reduced-price meal participation—but it also acts as means for identifying our highest-needs students to ensure that we provide them with necessary supports.

It is very important that you fill out the meal application and turn it in by October. Every eligible form counts and means healthy meals for your child and more money for our schools.
