Meal Prices and Payment

Student Meal Prices School Year 2021-2022

For school year 2021-2022 students at all DCPS schools will receive all meals at no charge. This includes breakfast and lunch, plus snack and supper at applicable schools. The USDA and OSSE waivers that allow universal free meals are set to expire on June 30th, 2022.

Despite universal free meals for SY 21/22, DCPS FNS still encourges parents/guardians of students who do not attend a CEP school to complete the Free and Reduced Meal (FARM) application to ensure they are eligible for other benefits.

Deactivate Student Meal Account

By deactivating a student's meal account, the student will not be able to receive a meal or milk during lunch. They will still be able to receive free breakfast and afterschool snack or supper. This ensures that there will be no meal or milk lunch charges to a student's account.
