Free and Reduced Price School Meal Applications eligibility during government shutdown - Click for more information

This message is sent on behalf of the D11 Director of Food and Nutrition

Dear D11 Families,

During a temporary lay-off or federal furlough without pay, families can apply for free or reduced price school meal benefits using current income information. The shutdown represents a temporary reduction in income and families experiencing these reductions must have the opportunity to apply for benefits, if needed. Applications must include all other household income and be completed according to requirements. Once the shutdown ceases, families can request their meal benefits be terminated. For questions, contact free&reducedpriceschoolmeals@cde.state.co.us.
