It's more than a Meal!

We strongly encourage parents to complete the Free and Reduced-price Meal Application. Confirmed eligibility establishes a number of benefits for individual students, such as free or discounted college-admissions tests, AP exams, and college applications; scholarship opportunities; and no- and low-cost access to technology and internet plans.

In addition, the percentages of qualifying students at a school are used as a measure to secure additional federal funding (Title I) to support students and their education, promote family engagement, and provide additional technology and internet access. Title I funds pay for additional teachers, additional learning opportunities for students, extra resources, added technology, and more.

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year

Lake Havasu Unified School District and Taher Food Service looks forward to providing your students with nutritious and tasty meals that are essential to promoting their growth and development.

Our Beliefs and Philosophy

All students should have a choice of what they eat and never be forced to eat anything, only encouraged.

No types of foods should be "banned". All foods work into a balanced diet.

A balanced diet is viewed over a period of time, not by a single meal.
