Free & Reduced Meal Benefits

Free & Reduced

Important Note

For the 21-22 school year, ALL meals for ALL students will be FREE. However, we request that you please still apply for free and reduced meals as this flexibility will only last until June 30, 2022. Additionally, families are highly encouraged to still fill out an application, because it can determine P-EBT benefits and may grant access to other benefits such as waived school fees. Students will still need funds in their accounts or cash to purchase snacks/a la carte or extra entree items. Adult meals are $4.25 and Milk is $0.85

Benefits Extension

Prior Year Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits Extended 30 Days into the 2021-2022 School Year!
If your student qualified for free or reduced meal benefits last school year, those benefits will be extended into the first 30 days of the 2021-2022 school year. A new application must be completed each school year. Any application that is not completed and processed within the first 30 days of the school year, will be changed to paying status. While at this time all students are eating for free, once USDA funding ends in June 2022, students will be charged at their eligibility status.  Families are held responsible for any charges that accrue anytime between benefit status lapses. Get your applications completed soon! Applying online is the fastest way to get your application processed, or pick up an application from your school's front office or kitchen staff.

Colorado P-EBT

In an effort to support Colorado’s families during the COVID-19 epidemic, the Colorado Department of Human Services and Department of Education have teamed up to secure USDA approval to issue Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) benefits to school-age children who would have received free or reduced-price meals during the time that schools have been closed.
