    For the 2021-2022 school year, meals will be free for all students. Students who bring lunch from home and want to grab a milk or add a fruit must pick 3 items (such as a fruit, veggie and milk) to count as a free lunch. Students can still purchase milk separately for $0.50.

  • While meals will be free for all students this school year, it is still critical that all families complete an Application for Educational Benefits. These applications determine how much funding your child's school receives for educational programs and technology. Apply online at schoolcafe.com/spps.
