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. Families are held responsible for any charges that accrue between the 30th school day and when and when a new application is processed. 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.

Every meal offered includes a grain, protein, fruits, vegetables and milk. For more information on our regulations please see our Nutrition/Wellness page.

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 for the 2019-2020 school year. It is also for children who would have been eligible for free or reduced-price meals in schools for March, April, or May due to loss of income in those months. Each household with an eligible child can receive an amount of $5.70 per child per school day on a Colorado EBT card that will provide extra food benefits to create healthy, wholesome meal options for kids. P-EBT benefits will be issued to households as a one-time payment.

For Colorado families that currently receive SNAP benefits and whose children attend a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program, no action will be needed from the family and benefits will be automatically issued starting Wednesday, July 22. Families that currently do not participate in the SNAP program, and whose children attend a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program, will need to fill out the P-EBT application. IMPORTANT NOTE: the application requires a SASID number for each student, you can find this in your Infinite Campus Family Portal. Click on the MORE tab (on the left), select Student State ID (SSID), and ensure you select each student at the top of the page (upper right corner).
