DCSD Nutrition Services:
Universal Free Meals for 2021-2022 School Year

DCSD Nutrition Services has a new website!

For all schools where DCSD Nutrition Services operates, the USDA has extended Meals at no cost through June 30, 2022. This means that one breakfast (where offered) and one lunch per day per student will continue to be provided at no cost to all students. Students are required to take a fruit or vegetable to make a reimbursable/no cost meal at breakfast and lunch. Ala Carte food items are available for purchase. Meals will be served in the school cafeterias to students.

Apply for Free and Reduced Priced Meals

Although the USDA is providing universal free meals through the 2021-2022 school year, families are strongly encouraged to complete the annual application for free and reduced-price meals. Families approved for this program receive benefits including eligibility for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program, a cash-like benefit to purchase groceries for students to replace meals they would have normally received when in-person at school during the pandemic.

In addition, those who qualify for free and reduced lunch are eligible for reduced or waived school fees and transportation fees. Submitting an application also helps ensure that schools receive resources to support healthy meals for students and afterschool programs.
