How much do meals cost?
Meals will be free for all DC youth ages 18 and younger through December 31, 2020.
The following meal prices will be in place starting January 1, 2021 for students enrolled at non-CEP schools. Students enrolled at CEP schools, and those who have been approved for Free and Reduced Meals (FARM) will continue to receive free breakfast and lunch.
- Breakfast: Free
- Lunch: $3.00
For students enrolled at non-CEP schools, Free and Reduced Meal (FARM) applications must be completed every school year to determine your student’s eligibility for FARM benefits. Families that believe they may qualify for FARM benefits are still encouraged to apply online now at https://www.myschoolapps.com/Application, in person at a meal pick-up site, or at their local school to prevent any disruption in meal service and qualification for any additional benefits.
