Meals

page updated: 09/27/20

Even though we will be starting the year with virtual instruction, we remain committed to supporting our students with meal distribution during the pandemic. Ensuring access to nutritious meals means that students are set up for success and ready to learn.

Meals for DC Youth ages 18 & Younger

Effective September 24, all DC youth ages 18 and younger may receive free grab-and go meals at DCPS meal site locations through December 31, 2020.

Please note that during this period, DC youth are not required to be enrolled DC Public Schools students to receive meals. To limit the number of trips, families need to make to meal sites, youth, or parents/guardians on their behalf, can receive up to 3 breakfast and 3 lunch meals at a time.

Meals consist of an entrée, fruit and/or vegetable serving, and a milk. DCPS meal service locations are open every Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the locations listed below. To access information regarding additional food resources and weekly grocery distribution, please visit coronavirus.dc.gov/food.
