Access to Free Meals for All Students 18 Years and Younger Will Extend Through the 2021-22 School Year

Aug. 18, 2021
 

All students enrolled in Denver Public Schools will have access to breakfast and lunch meals at no cost, regardless of free and reduced meal eligibility.

A la carte options (second entrée, milk, bottled water, snacks, etc.) will be available for purchase at school sites. Adult meals may be purchased, $3.00 for breakfast and $4.50 for lunch. For students who select a school lunch, they will go to the cafeteria line and choose from a variety of entrees and fruit/vegetable sides.  Students will enter their student ID at the cashier only if they purchase a la carte items.

Families who would like to get meals for children at home may go to their nearest school cafeteria and request meals for children 18 years and younger.

Families are encouraged to complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application to be eligible for additional family benefits and school funding, including items such as fee waivers, EBT benefits, and to ensure proper funding for schools.
