Free Meals for the 2023 - 2024 School Year

The Board of Education recently voted to opt in to the Healthy School Meals for All program. The Healthy School Meals for All program provides state funding for Colorado public school districts to serve free, nutritious meals to all K-12 students beginning next school year, 2023 - 2024. A la carte options will continue to be offered on a cost basis.

By providing free meals through this program, we believe it will promote equity and increase the number of students who eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch each day.

There are no changes to food service operations for the remainder of this school year, 2022 - 2023; meals will remain a paid option. We will also continue to reach out to you this summer to complete school meal benefit applications (free and reduced lunch applications), as this data may be used to capture other school fee waivers or federal funding.
